Fernvale station is overground with two side platforms serving LRT services in both directions of the West Loop. Outer and Inner loop services run clockwise and counter-clockwise around the loop respectively.

Passenger Information Systems, which are LED displays located at each platform, display the route of the next train and scrolls through messages, while an analog clock gives the time. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits. Staircases and lifts connect the platforms to the ground floor Concourse.
