The station was originally opened by the Leeds and Selby Railway in 1834. The road bridge crosses the line at an oblique angle; this was considered something of a marvel at the time of construction.

East of the station was the junction to the branch line to Castleford which closed in 1969. Garforth also has another railway station, East Garforth, situated approximately 0.56 miles (900 m) east of the main station which was opened in 1987. Though East Garforth is fully accessible to wheelchair users, the main Garforth station is not; wheelchair users can only access platform 2 which serves trains towards Leeds.
