The former station house and platform edge survive on the Cambridge - St Ives line. The route is now used by the Cambridgeshire Busway and its parallel path for cyclists and pedestrians, but the bus stops are on the other side of the road - see TL4165 : Oakington Busway Stop. The scene is enlivened by the TL4165 : Blue tit mural.
