Fashion Valley Transit Center opened on November 23, 1997 for trolley service and is elevated. The stop is a historic bus transfer point and buses originally caught buses on the northern edge of the mall before they moved south on June 15, 1997 in preparation of trolley service. The station has the required two side platforms, each covered by one long green canopy structure for most of its length (an extreme rarity on the San Diego Trolley). Exits are only from the northern Old Town-bound platform where Two overpass lead out to two staircases each (one an elevator) down to the transit center's bus bays for 7 connecting routes. The eastern exit continues across to the Garage of the Fasion Valley Shopping Center a mall (the JC Penny and Macy's logos are visible from the platform). There are 63 free transit spaces in this garage or at street level.
