Draper is a FrontRunner station that was originally not supposed to be part of the original FrontRunner South line and was planned to be added as a future infill station. Funding ended up being available to complete the station and it opened with the rest of the FrontRunner South Line. The stop is designed to be the location of a new transit oriented development and eBay has a major building across from this station. eBay employees provide quite a lot of the ridership to this station, using FrontRunner to go to and from work.
The station itself has an island platform for the two track line with two simple black canopy structures holding up brown roofs. The station will soon have level-crossing entrances at both ends but currently the northern entrance is closed by a simple wooden fence (just before the end of the platform). Only the southern end of the platform provides access to the station between the south side of a two story parking structure that is still under construction with only the bottom level open and a supplemental parking lot. There is one bus line that stops at the station's parking lot in a simple bus loop. Street access to the station is from to FrontRunner Blvd parallel to the western side of the station, near the intersection of eBay Way.
