Stratford station is a major transport interchange. Main line trains from London Liverpool Street to Essex stop here, as do London Underground Central Line trains. The North London Line between Richmond and North Woolwich formerly ran through two low-level platforms, one of which is still in use for terminating trains, and in 1999 these were joined by three Jubilee Line platforms. There is also a new bus station adjacent. The DLR uses a recently-built island platform on the western side of the station, with an entrance off the main station concourse.

As part of the Jubilee Line extension works, a new entrance and concourse was constructed next to the low-level platforms. Stratford is set to increase in importance with the opening of Stratford International station on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, to the north. A DLR extension will serve this new station, with trains running from there along the former North London Line via Stratford (Low Level) to Canning Town.

When the DLR station here opened, trains terminated at a formerly disused bay platform—see this page for pictures. The current platforms opened in 2007; one platform opened on 19th June 2007 with the other brought into service in September 2007.
