Church Street is a Muni Metro light rail station at the six-way intersection of Market Street, Church Street and 14th Street in the Duboce Triangle neighborhood of San Francisco, California. Service at the station began in June 1980.
The station consists of two side platforms next to the tracks on the second level down with the concourse mezzanine level overlooking it.
The J Church line, which enters and exits the Market Street Subway tunnel in a portal near the station, connects to this station at two surface-level platform. The inbound stop is near the corner of Church and Market Streets, while the outbound stop is near the corner of Church and 14th Streets. The F Market & Wharves streetcar line, running along Market Street, also has stops at the intersection. The N Judah line also exits the Market Street tunnel before reaching the Church Street station and stops one block away at Church and Duboce Avenue.
At both Church Street Station and Castro Street Station, there is only one stairway on each side of Market Street leading into the station. (All other stations on the Market Street Subway have entrances spread out along the length of the station.) One of these entrances is located on the northwest corner of Market and 14th Street, and the other is on the southwest corner of Market and Church Street.
