The station has "far-side" platforms: this means that the platforms are positioned on opposite sides of the intersection, and trains always stop at the platform after crossing the intersection.
The station's art was created by artist Ronald J. Llanos. Entitled Ephemeral Views: A Visual Essay, the installation depicts scenes of "the many characters who activate Los Angeles street life." 
Originally a stop on the Los Angeles and Independence and Pacific Electric railroads, it closed on September 30, 1953 with closure of the Santa Monica Air Line and remained out of service until re-opening on Saturday, April 28, 2012. It was completely rebuilt for the opening of the Expo Line from little more than a station stop marker. Regular scheduled service resumed Monday, April 30, 2012.
