South Jordan is a usual FrontRunner Station with a single island platform with two tracks allowing trains to pass at this station with a few extra details designed to market the City of South Jordan: the lamppost banners (and their support beams) are extra big at about double height; the two canopy structures on the platform are more complex than those at other FrontRunner stations: brick support beams cover about the first five feat of the white support beams that hold up the brown, gabled canopies. In the middle and on top of these canopies are small white squares with a stylistic silver tree in a green circle, the symbol for the City of South Jordan. Their topped off by small brown decorative spires. Finally a black and gold clock is situated in the middle of the platform with the City of South Jordan written on top of it. The canopies cover benches that include windscreens with wraps of pictures of past famous South Jordan Residents. One is a historic photo of the town baseball team.
To leave the station there are the usual grade crossing at either end of the platform. The trackway is about two feet above the parking lot area (more at the southern end of the station, less at the northern end) and this requires ramps and a few steps down to the bus loop inside the parking lot below. The bus loop has a couple of normal black bus shelters and two routes, 218, F514 that both provide service to the Sandy Civic Center TRAX Station just 1.5 miles away. All station access is from South Jordan Gateway with its entrance on the opposite side of the 577 space parking lot.
