Manasquan is the station platforms forgot. The station has the standard two tracks but no platforms. Passengers board all trains from their western sides walking directly over the ballast (there is a bit more ballast, particularly along the Bay Head-bound track that passengers walk over to reach Long Branch-bound trains) to the end trap doors. The grade crossing for Main Street just north of the station isn't where trains stop. The station originally had a 19th century Victorian station that was destroyed by fire in 1996. In 2004 the site of the station house was leased to a developer to build a 6,000 square foot building for a transit oriented development. The platform situation was't improved. This building is a large two story blue shingled wooden building that houses a number of small business (including a pub) and includes a small New Jersey Transit waiting room that is only open from 4:30am to 8:30am Monday through Sunday. The waiting room is accessed through a door from the track side of the building that has a white post canopy structure directly attached to the building. TVMs were installed beneath this canopy in May 2011. This canopy covers a sidewalk that set quite far back from the Bay Head-bound track. Around the building is the station's main 54 space free parking lot with some more parking in downtown lots north and south of the station.
