Western is another Orange Line Station with two rapid transit tracks just north of two more main line (freight only) railroad tracks that are along the same ROW along an embankment. The station has an elevator, staircase, and staircase/up escalator towards its eastern end down to a station house with simple grey walls with orange tiled accents. This station house extends north of the ROW to a very wide median between two separate sets of lanes of Western Blvd (two separate two-way, four lane roads). The median, normally grassy with trees at the station has a bus loops along either side with a canopied area (not over the buses themselves) for routes 49 and 94. It extends up to W 48th Place. Just south of the station extending west from the western roadway of Western Blvd, along the southern side of the Railway ROW is the station's 200 space Park & Ride Lot.
