Both an inbound streetcar and an outbound streetcar are at the West Portal Streetcar Station. The West Portal station of the Twin Peaks Tunnel is always busy. There are four different muni metro streetcar lines that use the Twin Peak Tunnel: The K Ingleside, The L Taraval, the M Ocean View, and the T Third Street.

The West Portal Streetcar Station is the western terminus of the 2.27-mile long Twin-Peaks Tunnel. Construction of the Twin-Peaks Tunnel began during December 1914; the tunnel was open for revenue service on 3 February 1918.
