Points of Interest This was a busy station and the northern most Transit Tunnel station and is not underground at all. There are actually 4 platforms. 1 outbound, and 3 inbound. There is also a large stabling yard for turning busses around. Here busses come off of I-5 or off local streets. When dual-mode buses were in operation, busses here usually switch from diesel to overhead at the bus platforms.
