This elevated station has three tracks and two side platforms. The center track is not used in regular service.
The street staircase features a stained glass piece by Romare Bearden. There are glass block tile and "uptown" and "downtown" directional mosaics in the mezzanine. From the northbound platform, there is a good view of the Bronx–Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges. Westchester Yard is located railroad north of the station, to the west of the Pelham Line itself. There are no windscreens, and the canopy is new. The mezzanine artwork features an interesting geometric sculpture on the northbound side.
In 1981, the MTA listed the station among the 69 most deteriorated stations in the subway system. Under the 2015–2019 MTA Capital Program, the station, along with thirty other New York City Subway stations, will undergo a complete overhaul and would be entirely closed for up to 6 months. Updates would include cellular service, Wi-Fi, charging stations, improved signage, and improved station lighting. However, these renovations are being deferred until the 2020–2024 Capital Program due to a lack of funding. As part of a revision to the Capital Program in April 2018, elevators will be installed at this station and it will become ADA-accessible. As of February 2021[update], funding had been committed to accessibility renovations at the Westchester Square station. In December 2021, the MTA awarded a contract for the installation of elevators at eight stations, including the Westchester Square station. As of July 2022[update], the project is scheduled to be completed in May 2024.
The station's only exit is a mezzanine beneath the tracks in Westchester Square. Outside fare control, a stair leads to the northeast corner of Westchester Avenue and Lane Avenue.
