Bascom is a light rail station located along the Union Pacific ROW with a single island platform for the two-track line that becomes a single track just south of the station on a stretch that includes the Hamilton Station. The light rail tracks are on the western side of the UP freight track. The island platform has a single cream-colored shelter that includes two sets of wind-screened benches. Decorative metal panels by artist Diana Pumpelly Bates designed to evoke baskets cover the windscreens. The platform has entrances at either end. These consists of pedestrian crossings over the southern and UP tracks that lead to a long and narrow Park & Ride lot with just two lanes of spaces with 102 total that extend north and south of the platform between the railroad lines and Southwest Expressway. Trains cross Bascom Avenue just south of the station right near the southern end of the long and narrow parking lot.
