Carl Street at Cole Street|
Cole Valley, San Francisco, California
|Opened||October 21, 1928|
Carl and Cole is a light rail stop on the Muni Metro N Judah line, located in the Cole Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The western portal of the Sunset Tunnel is located just east of the station. The station opened with the N Judah line on October 21, 1928.
The N Judah line runs on Carl Street; trains stop just before crossing Cole Street in each direction. Short high-level platforms for handicapped access are located east of the station in the tunnel portal. In 2007, the SFMTA proposed two transit bulbs at the stop (plus one at nearby Carl and Stanyan station) to provide larger boarding areas and prevent passengers from having to cross traffic lanes. The project was approved in 2011 and constructed in 2012. Further streetscape improvements on the bulbs began construction as part of the Inner Sunset Streetscape Project in September 2017.
