In a number of North American cities LRT lines have been built with separated directional sections on different roads (such as Phoenix, Portland), especially in downtown core areas where right of way is limited. Ie: Westbound and eastbound platforms would be named the same station but actually be constructed a block or two apart on parallel streets.

Can anyone who uses LRT systems with this feature comment on what the experience in their city with split LRT stations has been? How much signage is used to identify the path between stations? Do passengers ever need to travel between the split platforms? How far apart (feet or metres) have the stations been built? How do NEW transit customers find the split?
