"Tamien Station is an intermodal passenger transportation station served by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) light rail system, two bus routes, and the Caltrain commuter rail line. The station has two distinct elevated rail platforms – one for Caltrain, the other for light rail. Each is a center platform with two trackways (one on each side). The two platforms are connected by a walkway at ground-level that is below the two platforms.
The station is named after the Tamien (also spelled Tamyen) who were some of the Ohlone, a Native American people." (visit link
