Passenger statistics from the Office of Rail and Road
The station was opened by the Taff Vale Railway (TVR) on 4 February 1861. The TVR amalgamated with the Great Western Railway at the start of 1922, and the GWR renamed the station Ystrad (Rhondda) in December 1930. On 29 September 1986, the station was renamed Ton Pentre, when new station buildings were opened.
Monday-Saturday, there is a half-hourly service to Cardiff Central southbound and to Treherbert northbound. There is an hourly service in the late evening and a two-hourly service in each direction on Sundays. On 20 July 2018, previous franchise operator Arriva Trains Wales announced a trial period of extra Sunday services on the Rhondda Line to Cardiff and Barry Island. This was in response to a survey by Leanne Wood and the success of extra Sunday services on the Merthyr Line and the Rhymney Line.
