Montvale Station is the most northern stop on the Pascack Valley Line in New Jersey. The stop has a single low-level platform on the eastern side of the single track with a ramp up to a mini-high platform for ADA wheelchair access at its southern end. The platform also has black lampposts and a yellow tactile warning strip but no fences between it and the trees in the grassy town-square type area alongside the platform. The track crosses diagonally over two different streets at grade crossings at each end of the station. At the southern end is the intersection of Grand Avenue and Park Street, and the northern end is Kinderkamack Road and Wortendyke Avenue. The block long Railroad Avenue is across from the platform basically running its length. At the southern end of the platform is a small single level cream with green windows nondescript station house. This depot I believe is owned and opened by the borough's recreation department from a sign posted outside of it (although a sign says it is for ticketed passengers only from the NJTPD) and was open in the late afternoon of a weekday when I visited. Inside is are two separate rooms for waiting, the main one has two green benches plus one that looks like a wooden park bench on linoleum floors. Above a couple of windows is a bare bulb in a very old looking light fixture. There are also restrooms. Beneath the eaved roof along the platform is the station's TVM. For parking there are ten permit only spaces right around the depot plus another 60 across from the northern end of the station. These are all permit only owned by the municipality of Montvale. The station also recently got 139 new free parking spaces built and owned by NJT in the 2000s; these are in two lots on each side of Wortendyke Avenue across Kinderkamack Road from the station and are completely free.
