Description:
Bentley railway station is a railway station that serves Bentley, South Yorkshire, England. It lies on the Wakefield Line and is managed by Northern Rail, who also provide all the passenger trains serving it. An earlier wooden halt, Bentley Crossing, built by the West Riding and Grimsby Railway, had previously existed at the same location but was long disused.

Bentley is a popular commuting station for Leeds and Wakefield. It has a large car park for the size of the station and as such would be a good station for Park and Ride to Doncaster. However possibly due to the footbridge issue, Adwick station is the dedicated park and ride station for Doncaster.

A common complaint is the lack of a foot bridge between the two platforms. Passengers have to cross through the road barrier to get from one side to the other. This means that if you were approaching from the opposite side than the platform you want, you could arrive 5 minutes early and still miss your train due to the barriers being down. The Wakefield line is busy with intercity NXEC services and freight services.

Services

There are two trains per hour in each direction from the station on weekdays, southbound to Doncaster and northbound to Adwick. One southbound service continues to Meadowhall and Sheffield (Mon - Sat daytimes only), whilst one per hour northbound runs to Wakefield Westgate and Leeds.

Sundays see a two-hourly service each way to Doncaster & Leeds.
