Station layout[edit]

An outbound train arriving at the station

The station consists of a single-track balloon loop with a small handicapped-accessible platform on its southern side. Passengers not needing the accessible platform board and alight from trains east of the loop on the west side of 48th Avenue. A short siding, used to store and turn back trains, is located inside the loop and connects to the westbound track. When the loop is out of service, trains can turn back using a crossover between 48th Avenue and La Playa.[2]

In March 2014, Muni released details of the proposed implementation of their Transit Effectiveness Project (later rebranded MuniForward), which included a variety of stop changes for the N Judah line. Under that plan - which will be implemented as the N Judah Rapid Project - an inbound boarding island will be built at 48th Avenue, and an outbound transit bulb will be added at La Playa.[3]
