It is now a simple unstaffed halt, like all the other stations on the line; the station is served by London Northwestern Railway services between Watford Junction and St Albans Abbey. On Mondays to Saturdays there are trains in each direction every 45 minutes during the day, every 60 minutes during the evening. On Sundays, there is an hourly service all day. In December 2017 responsibility for the branch line passed from London Midland to London Northwestern Railway. Installation of Oyster Card readers on the stations along the branch is a possibility, although there are other ticketing options too.

Restoration of the crossing loop at Bricket Wood is being considered by the local authorities and Network Rail, which would facilitate trains running every 30 minutes. Butt, R. V. J..
