The station includes a park-and-ride and a bus transfer center. It is one of the busiest bus/light rail transfer points in the Sacramento Regional Transit District. It is also the only 2-level light rail station in the system: light rail, peak commute buses, and a Placer County Transit bus route to Auburn use the lower level in the I-80 median, while all daily routes use the Watt Avenue overpass on the upper level.
