Hillsboro Central TC/SE 3rd Ave serves the main bus connections with 5 lines in Hillsboro. The stop is dedicated to Shirley A. Huffman and consists of platforms on the northside of Washington Street between SE 3rd and 4th Avenues. There is an island platform only used by Portland-bound trains (a fence along the Hatfield Government Center-bound track keeps passengers from crossing except at the either end of the platforms) this platform has a central canopy (with a TVMs) with brick pillars holding up a slightly gabled roof and a few benches surrounded by windscreens. The side platform for Hatfield Government Center-bound trains is along a large modern (opened with the station in 1998) brick building and just beyond the building are the bus loops for connections. Inside the building is a precinct for the Hillsboro Police and the closed Books by Rail branch of the Hillsboro Public Library that was unsuccessful and closed in 2003.
