The station has two island platforms for the three tracks, although the center track currently doesn't have any revenue service, for a long period of time until the 1980s there was rush hours peak direction Express F train service. For exits form the two island platforms there canopied for almost there entire lengths except at there extreme ends. The station has two fare control areas, the one at almost the northern end of the station, has a single staircase down from each island platform to a decent sized station house beneath the tracks that has public restrooms (Opened from 5 am to Midnight), before the bank of turnstiles that lead out to staircases on eitherside of McDonald Avenue, just south of its intersection with 18 Avenue. There is a secondary unstaffed station house with just High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles towards the southern end of the station. This has single staircases down from each platform, and a pair of street stairs that lead down to McDonald Avenue between Lawrence Avenue and Parkville Avenue. The station offers excellent views at both ends of both platforms for photographing trains along the Culver Line.
