4th & King Station
The Caltrain station itself features Subway Sandwich, a cafe, and a flower stand. Safeway and Walgreens are located across the street from the station. Restrooms are available inside the main station building
Caltrain ticket machines and Clipper card readers are located in the station concourse. All riders must have a valid ticket or tagged Clipper Card before boarding Caltrain and train crews may inspect for fares at the station (after Giants games and other special events) or onboard. Riders using Clipper should "tag off" after exiting the train.
This station has 11 tracks stretching from Townsend to King Street. Each door has a sign showing the departure time of the train on the platform. Passengers wait in the concourse until boarding begins 10-15 minutes before departure time. The door to the platform will close promptly at departure time.
There are two Muni Metro platforms located outside the Caltrain station. Judah trains stop at the platform on the King Street median (closer to the Caltrain station) and Third Street trains stop at the platform in the middle of 4th Street south of King Street (see photo). Pay fare on the vehicle with cash or Clipper card when boarding.
Riders heading to Downtown SF can board either the T or the N train. An overhead electronic sign located by the Caltrain station (on King Street) shows the real-time departure information for both lines so that riders can decide which platform to go.
E-Embarcadero historic streetcar line provides service to the Ferry Building and Fisherman's Wharf from this station. Board the E line cars from the low level platform next to the N line platform on King Street at 4th Street.
Muni bus stops are located at various locations on 4th Street and Townsend Street.
