PlatformsEdit

Pont de Levallois-Bécon has two platforms, one central and one side, serving three tracks: the central platform is served by the two tracks used for the departure of the trains while the side platform is served by the trains on arrival. The decoration is in the style used for most metro stations: the lighting strips are white and rounded in the Gaudin style of the renouveau du métro of the 2000s, and the bevelled white ceramic tiles cover the walls, the vault and the tympan. The advertising frames are a honey color faience and the name of the station is also faience. The seats are a Motte style white colour.

Bus connectionsEdit

The station is served by lines 94, 167, 238 and 275 of the RATP Bus Network and at night, by lines N16 and N52 of the Noctilien bus network.
