The station has, as has Porte de Pantin located on the same line, a particular arrangement specific to the stations having served or serving as terminus. It has three lanes and two platforms, the platform on the south side being lateral and the platform on the north side forming an island between two lanes. The walls, located flush with the platform are vertical and the roof of the station is straight without metal panels, unlike other stations.
A bus station is located above the station and offers connections with lines 146, 148, 234, 251, 301, 303 and 322 of the RATP Bus Network, with lines 615 and 620 of the Transdev TRA bus network, with line 93 of the CIF bus network, with line 8 of the Trans Val de France bus network and, at night, with lines N13, N41 and N45 of the Noctilien network.
