The station has four tracks and two side platforms. The two express tracks are used by the A train during daytime hours.
Both platforms are column-less and have a rouge trim-line with a purple border and name tablets reading "RALPH AVE." in white sans serif font on a purple background and rouge border. Underneath the trim line are small directional and station signs reading "RALPH" in white lettering on a black border.
This station has a full length mezzanine above the platforms and tracks. Only the western half is open to the public and has two staircases to each platform. The columns here are painted dark blue except for those that have payphones on them, which are painted yellow.
This underground station opened on April 9, 1936, and replaced the BMT Fulton Street El. The Ralph Avenue El station, which was formerly above the current subway station, closed on May 31, 1940.
The fare control area at the extreme west end has a bank of four turnstiles and one exit-only turnstile. There is a token booth and two street stairs, one to the southeast corner of Ralph Avenue and Fulton Street and the other to the northeast peninsula formed by Ralph Avenue, MacDougal Street, and Fulton Street.
This station formerly had another entrance/exit to Howard Avenue and Fulton Street at the east (railroad south) end. The street stairs on either eastern side of the intersection, though closed, remain intact. Both platforms have many staircases to the closed-off portion of the mezzanine.
