The station was built as a infill station along the existing transitway corridor, with a pair of elevated bus platforms at the western end of Albert Street. Beneath it is the O-Train station, the northern terminus of the Trillium Line, located on a stub-end track branching off from the railway line. Paved asphalt footpaths connect the two stops on opposite sides of the Transitway and the train platform.
On January 17, 2016, the transitway platforms closed for conversion to light rail, with all buses diverting via Albert Street. The station will reopen in 2019 as an intermediate stop on the first phase of the Confederation Line, making Bayview an important rapid transit transfer point. It will also be a catalyst for large redevelopment including condos, hotels and the city's tallest office tower at 801 Albert. Plans also exist for converting a 1940s warehouse into a film studio and build an attached 15 storey "innovation hub".
The station, named for nearby Bayview Road, is close to Tom Brown Arena.
On September 16, 2017, the eastbound portion of Bayview Station was moved 300m south to facilitate the construction of the new O-Train Line 1 Bayview station.
