Embarcadero Station is a Muni Metro and Bay Area Rapid Transit station near the Embarcadero in the Financial District of San Francisco, California. It is located at the north-eastern end of the Market Street Subway below Market Street between Spear Street and Beale Street. Like all of the shared BART and Muni stations on the Market Street Subway, the concourse mezzanine is on the first level down, an island platform for the Muni Metro is on the second level down, and the island platform for BART is on the third level down.

Service at this station began on May 27, 1976, three years after the other San Francisco stations.[2] The later opening resulted in Embarcadero having a much different design than the other three Market Street stations.

Embarcadero Station originally was the terminus for all of the Muni Metro lines, but in 1998 a new extension was opened from Embarcadero Station, along the Embarcadero and to the Caltrain station at 4th and King Streets. Service along that extension was originally provided by the E Embarcadero line, which ran between Embarcadero Station and the Caltrain station. The N Judah line was later extended along the new extension to replace the E line. On April 7, 2007, the T Third Street line replaced the N line along this route, but N-line service was reinstated on June 30, 2007 to serve alongside the T.

The Ferry Building, Embarcadero Center, Transbay Terminal and the eastern end of the California Street cable car line are all located near Embarcadero Station.
