Expo/Western 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 Crenshaw Blvd in between them. In both directions trains stop at the farside 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. Both platforms have only one legal entrance via a ramp at the very rear end of the platform where the POP Fare Paid Zone begins. The locations of the TVMs beneath there canopy along each entrance is different. For the Downtown LA-bound platform its at the top of the ramp, Culver City-bound its at the bottom of the ramp. The opposite (front) ends of each platform has an emergency exit gate and staircase down to street level that should have been turned into a secondary, TAP card already required entrance. Artwork along the platforms (that have the usual Expo Line aqua-blue steel and silver canopies) are mosaic panels that make up Ephemeral Views: A Visual Essay, 2012 by Ronald J. Llanos. These panels are images of the surrounding community that look like they were drawn out of a sketchbook.
