Tamien is an intermodal passenger transportation station in San Jose, California 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 elevated island platforms, one for each service. The two platforms are connected by a walkway at ground-level that is below the two platforms. The light rail platform is located in the center median of the State Route 87 freeway just north of the Alma Avenue overpass. The Caltrain platform is located between Lick Avenue and State Route 87, just north of Alma Avenue.

The station is served by the Blue Line of the VTA Light Rail system.

Currently, Caltrain does not serve this station during the middle of the day on weekdays. On weekends, a Caltrain shuttle bus instead of a train connects Tamien to the San Jose Diridon station. Caltrain is set to be electrified from San Francisco to Tamien by 2022. Services to Gilroy, beyond Tamien, will remain diesel-propelled.

The station is named after the Tamien (also spelled Tamyen) who are some of the Ohlone, a Native American people.[5]
