Orchard is a VTA light rail station in the median of East 1 Street. The stop has two offset side platforms on each side of Orchard Parkway so trains stop on the far side of the intersection. Orchard Parkway is the only way to legally access each platform although jaywalking to the other ends of the platforms is easy and often done with minimal emergency exit signage and no gate. The streetside of each platform is a Jersey barrier with a blue railing. The northbound platform has no coverings for waiting passengers. There are just some benches and an exposed to the elements TVM and Clipper Card readers. The southbound platform has a single standard blue canopy held up by two tiled pillars that have Orchard in white written on brown tile.
