The S-Line platform at Central Pointe opened on December 8, 2013 and is located beyond the southern end of the Light Rail platform on the east side of the light rail tracks (the track off and heads east beyond the station) between the light rail tracks and streetcar tracks. It is accessed only by using the southern grade-crossing off this platform. From here passengers must walk through an unnecessary maze of fencing, go past the bumper block for Light Rail trains (currently at track level) and proceed a little farther before reaching the tactile warning strip of the streetcar platform with a simple silver shelter (with glass windscreens) that covers the station's TVM and TAP reader along with a tiny bench. Just south of the platform a single switch connects the streetcar line with the rest of the TRAX system. Streetcars are regular TRAX modern S70 low-floor light rail cars with a few modifications including their unique white and silver livery and the couplings at each end of the cars and the lack of visible couplings at the each end of the cars for a more streamlined look.

Streetcars are the same S70 modern light rail vehicles and are stored down the green line a short ways from this station. This switch is the lines connection to the rest of the light rail system, the S-Line lacks its own car barn
