Civic Center is the southern end of the original light rail starter line that opened on December 11, 1987. The station was the terminus for just seven months until service was extended through and into Downtown San Jose on June 17, 1988. The VTA's main train yard, home to the Guadalupe Light Rail Division is two blocks north of this station accessed by a block long non-revenue track down Younger Avenue. The station itself has a single island platform that begins at the intersection of Mission Street and runs north. Mission Street is the platform's only entrance at the southern end of the platform. Nearly the entire platform has a blue square framework along it that includes the station name signs written onto it. The majority of this framework has a translucent canopy. Signage is white text on blue.
