Radley is an unmanned station, though there is a telephone helpline.  It is well lit at night.   There is also plenty of car parking space.  People commute to Oxford and London from Radley and Abingdon.Access to both northbound and southbound platforms is from the Abingdon side only.

In Spring 2008 the station had a major overhaul.  The entrance has been tidied and it has all been resurfaced.  There is more car parking space and cycle racks.
