Belmont is an underground Blue Line Station that opened on February 1, 1970. The station consists of a single island platform that has grey brick walls and a column-less arched ceiling over the entire platform except at its northern end where the station's one exit is where the platform has a double-height flatter ceiling. Here a single combined staircase/escalator leads up to a very small mezzanine. This has the turnstiles and ticket machines before leading out to a single escalator/staircase up to a small flat roofed overhanging canopy in the middle of a tiny bus loop at the SE corner of Belmont Avenue and Kimball Avenue.
