South San Francisco (Caltrain Station)

South San Francisco station is a Caltrain station in South San Francisco, California. It serves Local and Limited-Stop trains. The station is on the east side of Highway 101 beneath E. Grand Ave; downtown South San Francisco is across the freeway.

The station suffers from a poor location and poor amenities; the southbound platform is not ADA-compliant, and riders for northbound trains cross the (usually) southbound track to a narrow platform between the tracks, thus requiring a "hold out" rule at the station—if a train is stopped for passengers a train on the other track must wait. The station must be accessed via Dubuque Ave., and a tall pedestrian staircase is provided to access Grand Ave., above the station. The poor location precludes buses from connecting to the station. Although numerous Samtrans routes run near the station on Airport Blvd., the hills and tight turns make it difficult for buses to reach the station.

Famous quotes containing the words francisco, south and/or san:

    Mr. Wiggam, I want you to change the policy of The Clarion. I want you to write a story I should have written myself long ago. I want you to tell the people of San Francisco that no city can exist without law and order. Write a story about that flag, write about what verifies and brings a promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There are some people in this town who don’t seem to know that. Let The Clarion tell them.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    Whenever I’m asked why Southern writers particularly have a penchant for writing about freaks, I say it is because we are still able to recognize one. To be able to recognize a freak, you have to have some conception of the whole man, and in the South the general conception of man is still, in the main, theological.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    Today, San Francisco has experienced a double tragedy of incredible proportions. As acting mayor, I order an immediate state of mourning in our city. The city and county of San Francisco must and will pull itself together at this time. We will carry on as best as we possibly can.... I think we all have to share the same sense of shame and the same sense of outrage.
    Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)
