The station contains four tracks and two side platforms: two outer tracks, used by the IRT local trains. The two center express tracks slant upward to the inside of the outer local tracks, and between the aforementioned express tracks are the rising BMT Brighton Line tracks. Those routes were built at the same time as the tracks at this station as part of the Dual Contracts. A full curtain wall separates the local from the express tracks.
Both platforms have their original mosaics. The name tablets read "BERGEN ST." in gold Times New Roman font on a blue background and multi-layered green border. The trim line is green with "B" tablets on them on a blue background at regular intervals. At either ends of both platforms, where they were extended in the 1950s, there are cinderblock tiles with signs reading "BERGEN ST" in sans serif font on a maroon background.
The platforms only have columns at the fare control areas and they are i-beam columns painted green.
Each platform has one same-level fare control area at the center and there are no crossovers or crossunders. The Manhattan-bound platform has the full-time turnstile bank and token booth and two staircases going up to either eastern corners of Bergen Street and Flatbush Avenue. The southbound platform's fare control area is unstaffed, containing a bank of three regular turnstiles, two exit-only turnstiles, and two High Entry/Exit Turnstiles. Outside fare control are two staircases going up to the southwest corners of Flatbush Avenue and Bergen Street and a passageway leading to another staircase going up to the northwest corner.
