The station is aligned on a west to east axis, and has two through platform tracks serving a single island platform, together with a number of non-platform through tracks and sidings. The platform is accessed at its eastern end by a subway, and at its western end by an access to the centre of the adjacent level crossing. To the west the Furttal line continues as a dual track railway towards Zürich Affoltern station. To the east the line splits into two single track lines, one curving south to join the Zürich–Winterthur line towards Zürich Oerlikon station whilst the other joins the same line heading northbound.[2]

Trains on the S6 provide a half-hourly connection to Zürich Hauptbahnhof station, taking 12 minutes for the journey via the southern connector and Oerlikon station. In the opposite direction, S6 trains continue to Baden station, taking 28 minutes for the journey.[3] The station also sees significant through freight traffic, most of which takes the Furttal line in order to avoid passing through central Zürich, using the northern connector onto or off the Zürich–Winterthur line.
