Kings Highway is an intermediate Express stop on the Culver Elevated. The station has two island platforms for the three-track line. Many terminating trains use the middle track during rush hour because the Coney Island Terminal can't handle the extreme frequency of F train service during rush hour times. When the Coney Island Reconstruction project was happening and all F trains were terminating here or at Avenue X, Kings Highway was the station where F trains crews changed (generally on Manhattan-bound trains, there was a slight delay do to the operators switching) because it has crew quarters and Avenue X doesn't.

The station has two exits, one at either end of the station. At the southern end of the station single staircases lead down from each platform to a small, unstaffed station house. There are a couple of High Entrance/Exit Turnstiles in it, MVMs, and a two staircases, one down to eitherside of McDonald Avenue, north of its intersection with Avenue S. The full-time entrance is towards the northern end of the station. It has a similar layout, with a single staircase down from each island platform to a station house beneath the tracks. This one has the turnstiles and the token booth and exits out to eitherside of McDonald Avenue at the southern corners with Kings Highway. The platforms are both canopied for their entire lengths except at the extreme northern ends of the platforms, beyond the staircases down to the Kings Highway exit.

(kings_highwayf6) Looking down the Manhattan-bound platform at Kings Highway. There is a train on the middle track because of construction that is requiring all trains to terminate at Avenue X, and transfer to a shuttle train. This means Avenue X-bound trains are bypassing Avenue U.
