All trains of the regional service of the JR Kyoto Line, i.e., Special Rapid Service, Rapid Service and local trains, stop at the station. Express and limited express trains, such as Super Hakuto and Kuroshio, do not make stop at Takatsuki.
Takatsuki station opened when the railway between Osaka and Kyoto started provisional operation between Osaka Station and Mukōmachi Station on July 28, 1876. Since the railway was first built with single track, the location of Takatsuki Station in the middle of Osaka and Kyoto was suitable for trains of both directions cross each other.
Takatsuki Station has two island platforms that enable passengers to transfer easily between local and rapid trains. It has separate tracks for passing trains as well. Stairs, escalators and elevators connect the two platforms to the upper level concourse. The station provides automated and window services for passengers including seat reservation.
