Orem is a FrontRunner station with two tracks and single island platform on the western side of the Union Pacific tracks with I-15 just east of them. The island platform has two canopy structures. These structures have brick arches holding up a green gabled roof. Beneath are benches that have windscreens. The lampposts on the platform are green. In the middle of the platform is the Safety Bufflo. It is a brown model of a buffalo (on a stand elevated from the rest of the platform with signs saying "Please Don't Climb on Safety Display"). Red stickers read: Safety Buffalo Says "Look Both Ways Before Crossing Tracks" Trains are really big!! Access to the platform is at either end. Here pedestrian grade crossings lead out to a 498 space parking lot with a substantial bus loop closest to the station. This loop has seven shelters that are in the same design (albeit slightly smaller) than those on the train platform.
