Powell Street Station is a Muni Metro and Bay Area Rapid Transit station near the intersection of Market Street and Powell Street in downtown San Francisco, California. The station is located along the Market Street Subway and extends underground from Fourth Street to Fifth Street. Hallidie Plaza connects to the station on the north side of Market 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.

The Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde cable car lines turn around at Powell and Market, above the station. Union Square is three blocks north of the station, and the Westfield San Francisco Centre is on Market at Powell. The Westfield has its own entrance from the Powell Station itself. The old United States Mint building is located one block away at Fifth Street and Mission Street. Also nearby are Yerba Buena Gardens, the Moscone Convention Center, and the Metreon movie theater and entertainment complex. Tourist information is available at the San Francisco Visitor's Bureau located in Hallidie Plaza.

Powell Street is also the hub for San Francisco's Theatre District. The Geary Theatre, home to the American Conservatory Theatre, is three and a half blocks away. Located nextdoor to the Geary Theatre is the historic Curran Theatre, now home to several touring Broadway productions. Nearby Yerba Buena Gardens houses the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. TIX Bay Area, a Ticketmaster booth that also sells half-price tickets to several local theatre companies, is located in Union Square.

Service at this station began on November 3, 1973. [1]
