Expo/Vermont is a standard Expo Line station in the median of Exposition Blvd with two fully offset side platforms for the two track line with the intersection of Vermont Avenue in between them. In both directions trains stop at the far-side of the intersection so the Culver City-bound platform is on the west side and the Downtown Los Angeles-bound platform is on the east side.

For entrances the platforms very: The Culver City-bound platform has the normal single entrance to only the rear of the platform from the Vermont Avenue intersection. Passengers first pass canopied TVMs before going up a ramp with TAP Validators just before entering. The opposite end of this platform is a gate to an emergency exit staircase. The Downtown Los Angeles-bound platform is more unique because it is wedged between the intersections of Vermont Avenue and Bill Robertson Lane. The rear end of the platform to Vermont Avenue has a ramp, the front-end has a staircase to the light at the intersection of Bill Robertson Lane. Both entrances have tap readers at the top of the ramp or staircase before actually entering the platform but there are no TVMs by the platforms. Instead passengers must use two stand-alone sets of TVMs with awnings and black lettering on them that spell out Metro. One of these is at the NE corner of Vermont Avenue and Exposition Blvd at the SE corner of the main University of Southern California Campus. The other is near the SW corner of Bill Robertson Lane and Exposition along Jesse Brewer Jr. Park. These TVMs are particularly unique because their set back from the sidewalk with a gravel area in front of them and include a bunch of aqua-blue expo line bike racks.

The station platforms have the normal aqua-blue steel and silver canopies that all stations along the Expo Line have been furnished with. For artwork is Neighborhood Portrait: Reconstructed, 2011 by Jesse Polzin. It has various cartoonish tile images of the neighborhood and its people. Some are exteriors of buildings others are interiors with images of people relaxing at home.

There is no space for TVMs at the entrance so this area along a park across from it was built instead, a much better design
