The station built with wooden huts to serve as the ticket office (despite being called a halt it was staffed) and shelters on the platforms which were also wooden. The station was closed for about a year from late 1991 to be rebuilt, this coinciding with the electrification of the Cross-City Line. The platforms and ticket office/waiting room were built from brick and stone, the shelters replaced by the standard bus shelter type.
Butlers Lane retains a manned ticket office, though only open part-time. The station is managed by West Midlands Trains.
