Burnage railway station is a suburban railway station on the Styal Line, opened between Longsight (Slade Lane Junction) and Wilmslow in 1909. It now serves the Manchester - Crewe (via Manchester Airport) rail route, used by Northern Rail and First TransPennine Express for stopping services to Manchester Airport. It caters mainly for commuter traffic, being electrified at 25kV AC overhead, and is used by a mixture of EMU and DMU traffic.

Services are approximately every half hour in each direction on Mondays to Saturdays, with extra peak hour calls by express services to cater for commuters who work in Manchester. The Sundays frequency is hourly.
