A sign on the lawn in front of the building listed:

It also listed the logos of other transportation districts that served this location. The three most obvious were, Caltrain, VTA, and Amtrak.

A neon sign indicated the presence of a news stand. It was actually more of a snack bar.

A train waited beyond the windows. Just this side of the windows were two Caltrain ticket machines, and one Clipper card reader.

A ramp led down to a tunnel under the tracks. This was the only way to access the trains. At the far other end of this tunnel was a light rail station.
