The tram stop is located on a section of line which follows the trackbed of the former Woodside and South Croydon Railway, and is adjacent to the point at which that railway's branch to Addiscombe station diverged from the line between Elmers End station and Sanderstead station. Prior to the opening of Tramlink, there was no station at this site which had previously contained long-disused allotments.


Blackhorse Lane is served by tram services operated by Tramlink. The tram stop is served by trams every 5 minutes between Wimbledon and Arena, with trams continuing alternately to either Elmers End or Beckenham Junction every 10 minutes.[3][4]

On Saturday evenings and Sundays, the service is reduced to a tram every 7-8 minutes in each direction, with trams every 15 minutes to Elmers End and Beckenham Junction.

Services are operated using Bombardier CR4000 and Stadler Variobahn Trams.
