Vista Transit Center is located on the central section of double-track on the Sprinter Line and is the main intermediate station with bus connections in a quite developed low-rise area with many shops around. It has two side platforms each with 3 unique canopies about 180 feet Northwest of the grade crossing with Vista Village Drive . These have 2 cream colored columns holding up a sightly gabled green roof with little rods that stick out of each end. The platforms are connected by grade-crossings at each end. The Escondido-bound platform is just above the station's bus loop with 3 short staircases (one at each end and one in the middle) and two ramps (at each end) lead down to ten bus bays serving 9 Breeze Bus Lines along Olive Avenue. The bus bays have nice large arched black canopies to shelter waiting passengers. The station has two parking lots. One has about 60 spaces and is along the Oceanside-bound platform, between it and Santa Fe Avenue. The other is across Olive Avenue from the bus loop and is about an 100 space parking lot at the NW corner of Olive Avenue and Vista Village Drive.
