It was renamed Tottenham Hale on 1 September 1968 when it became an interchange station with London Underground on the opening of the first stage of the Victoria line.
The next station to the south on the line to Liverpool Street is Clapton but very few trains, except on Sundays, serve both Clapton and Tottenham Hale. Most trains either run non-stop between Liverpool Street and Tottenham Hale or make one intermediate stop at Hackney Downs. Clapton is almost exclusively served by trains going via the Chingford branch instead.
From 11 December 2005, a new service between Stratford and Stansted Airport reintroduced a direct passenger connection between Tottenham Hale and Stratford via the mainly freight line across Walthamstow Marshes. Lea Bridge, a former station between Tottenham Hale and Stratford, may be re-opened in the future.
In the late 1990s, at the same time as the Stansted Express service to Stansted Airport was started, the British Rail station at Tottenham Hale was totally rebuilt along with a revamp of the Underground station. None of the original Victorian station now exists.
Two of London's last remaining Trolleybus poles still stand on Ferry Lane as it crosses over the railway tracks by the station.
