The railway station is one of the busy railway stations of Kerala, with about 5500 passengers boarding trains on a daily basis, and generated an annual income of 12.44 crore (US$1.8 million) in the year 2011–12. Both long and short distance trains stop at Tiruvalla, and at present the station is a way-side station, though terminal facilities could be developed. The Tiruvalla station lies in the Kayankulam Junction - Kottayam - Ernakulam route, and along with the nearby Chengannur railway station, is an important station en route.

The Indian Railways have included Tiruvalla railway station in its development plan for 2016–17. The platform work and doubling of the track are in progress. Battery operated buggies may be introduced at the Tiruvalla station soon, which shall also facilitate the ferrying of the elderly and physically challenged people in the railway station. At present, the platforms are not fully covered, and the full covering of all platforms including the fourth shall also be implemented.
