Though Hunmanby Railway Station is unstaffed, there is a free help phone at the entrance to platform 2. (platform for Scarborough) Inside the new waiting shelter on the same platform is the new ticket machine where tickets can be purchased and collected with an internet booking reference. On trains, children travel half price, young children under 5, dogs and bikes travel free.
Cycle racks are installed on Platform 1, (platform for Bridlington and Hull) which also has a new waiting shelter.
CCTV, real time information, loudspeakers, and new signage have been installed.
Friends of Hunmanby Railway Station receive generous support from Northern Railway and local traders to make the station attractive to users with flower displays and community notice boards.
Both platforms have new waiting shelters decorated with artwork from the village school for the relaunch of the new hourly train service in May 2019.
Friends of Hunmanby Railway Station are currently raising funds to install two more poster boards to display this artwork on a permanent basis.
