The station played a key role in Brantford's economic development. It brought markets, materials and labour into the city. Refurbishments for the Brantford railway station came in 2002 when Via Rail spent $350,000 ($466,900 in today's money) to make general improvements to railway service. Ten passenger trains connect Brantford to the major economic hubs of Windsor, Sarnia, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa every day.
The station is wheelchair-accessible and is located near the junction of Market, Gray and West Streets. CN Gore Park is the closest park to the railway station, with the Carnegie Library and the Brethour House being other attractions within a reasonable distance of the station. A self-service ticketing kiosk allows people to print out their own tickets.
The station building includes the Brantford Station Gallery, an art gallery & coffee shop featuring live music, which is open to travellers.
Brantford Transit provides transit access to and from the railway station. Short-term and long-term automobile parking are available for a fee as of August 1, 2012; previously the parking had been free to use. Increased use of railway services has been the primary reason for this change in parking policy.
