Van Ness station is a Muni Metro station on the Market Street Subway at the intersection of Market Street and Van Ness Avenue (U.S. Route 101) in San Francisco, California. The station consists of a concourse mezzanine on the first floor down, and a single island platform on the second level down. Service at the station began in February 1980.[1]

The station has suffered flooding during heavy rainstorms, including one in October 2009, and another in December 2014 which damaged an electrical equipment room.[2][3] In February 2017, the SFMTA signed a $1.9 million contract to repair water-damaged wiring in the room.[4]
