The station is located on the former Glasgow, Yoker and Clydebank Railway, between Hyndland and Dalmuir which opened in 1882 (though through services to Dalmuir did not start until 1897, when the company was also taken over by the North British Railway). The station here though wasn't opened until 5 November 1960 by British Railways, as part of the North Clyde Line modernisation and electrification scheme.
The station is served by trains between Dalmuir or Dumbarton Central, Yoker and Partick, which then continue into both main Glasgow stations. There are also peak-hour-only services beginning and terminating at Garscadden, mostly on the Argyle Line (via Glasgow Central Low Level). These enter service (or leave service after terminating here) from the adjacent Yoker TMD reception sidings.
Trains operate 4 x hourly (Mondays to Saturdays) from Garscadden to Glasgow City Centre, with two going to Glasgow Central Low Level and two going to Glasgow Queen Street Low Level. Those to Central continue to Whifflet and Motherwell (alternate trains only), whilst the Queen St trains run to Cumbernauld via Springburn. In the opposite direction, trains originate from either Cumbernauld or Motherwell via the Hamilton Circle line.
The service on Sundays is provided by the Balloch to Larkhall (hourly) or Motherwell via Whifflet (hourly) trains.
