Snell is a station in the middle of the West Valley (Norman Mineta) Freeway. The station has a single island platform for the two-track line with a single entrance via a staircase/up escalator followed by an elevator (with an elevated walkway to it) from the west sidewalk of the overpass of Snell Avenue at its southern end. This is all enclosed by concrete with a small amount of tiling adding details. There is a train signal engraved in the elevator shaft. After the staircase/elevator, the platform ramps up slightly to the modern level-boarding level for the new lower floor LRVs. On this area are some planters and a single canopy structure with blue arched canopy held up by tiled columns that have Snell in white tiled above the exit arrows. The northern end of the platform ends with an Emergency Safe Area in the middle of the freeway.

Each are accessed via a staircse down from the sidewalk of Snell Avenue that seves as the station's bridge, the northern park and ride also contains the staiton's 4 bay bus loop, and also has an elevator (in a tower similar to the station down to it.
