The 9th Street Station is a typical 4th Avenue Line local stop that saw the 1960s cinder blocking and covering of its original 1910s Vickers dual-contracts era name tablets and trim-line. The station has two side platforms, and tiled walls between the local and express tracks. The stations original exits are about a third of the way from the southern end of each platform, directly on them. The Manhattan-bound platform has turnstiles and the full-time token booth, with a single staircase up to the NE corner of 4th Avenue & 9th Street. Along the walls of this cramped platform side fare control area the a brief portion station's original mostly brown trim-line can be scene, there are 9s on it at regular intervals as would be expected. The Bay Ridge/Bensonhurst-bound platform has only a High Entrance/Exit Turnstile, and a High Exit Turnstile up to its one staircase at street level. There is evidence here of a former turnstile area in the form of a dark gated off portion at the entrance, meaning this area was bigger at one time.

Full time fare control for the southbound platform is shared with the F trains fare control area on the west side of 4th Avenue, between 9th and 10th Streets directly at street level, underneath its Culver Viaduct. The transfer to the F/G train on their Culver Line Viaduct is from a single staircase at the southern end of each BMT platform, these each lead up to a seperate fare control area (covered in the 4 Avenue station), before stairs lead to a further intermediate mezzanine before staircases lead up to each F train platform. Passengers can transfer free between BMT R train directions but must climb this series of staircases all the way up to the IND's elevated platforms to reach the free crossover before coming back down again, ascending and then descending four stories (8 total flights of stairs) to get between each subway platform.
