The platform has an enclosed shelter that is open 24/7 but has no staffed ticket window. The single track is long enough to accommodate out-of-service trains, but due to the station's low train volume, most trains simply arrive and depart. One freight train, the Norfolk Southern Manhattan Local, runs on the track that splits off from the Manhattan station to the Manhattan Oil Refinery.
