The Tremont Avenue station is an express station on the Concourse Line with two platforms and three tracks. It received a full-scale rehabilitation in 1999; hence, it is in better shape than most other Concourse Line stations. However, water damage has marred some of the wall tiles on each platform.
The station has two sets of entryways – one on Tremont Avenue/Grand Concourse and another on 179th Street/Grand Concourse. Closed stairwells at the center of each platform lead to the closed part of what was once a full-length mezzanine; the station’s rehabilitation resulted in a split mezzanine.
