The Sprinter's northern terminus and platform at the Oceanside Transit Center is just south of the transit center's building and underpass that connects the two main line platforms. It begins with a canopy covering TVMs followed by a ramp up to the end of the island platform for two tracks that begin right here at bumper blocks. The platform has 3 more standard canopies The station tracks' here are dedicated to only Sprinter operations so there is no need for the standard gap fillers with just fence covered tactile warning strips except for locations where doors align. The southern end of the platform has a ramp down to track level which leads to a grade crossing across the east track and to another parking lot which surrounds the station. The line has a separate track along the right away of the Coaster/Amtrak main line all the way south to just before the next station, Coast Highway.

Looking across to the island platform with two tracks that is SPRINTER's terminus at Oceanside Transit Center, it is parallel to the other rail lines, and is quite crowded with people waiting for the train.
