An air tram station is a terminal for boarding passengers who wish to travel via air tram. One such station is located in San Francisco.

Admiral James T. Kirk used San Francisco's air tram station to travel to Starfleet Headquarters in San Francisco in 2273, on the way to the USS Enterprise to handle the V'Ger crisis. While at the air tram station, he met Commander Sonak, who was intended to serve as science officer on the forthcoming mission. Meanwhile, a Class F shuttlecraft was also at the station, preparing for departure. There were also several Federation ambassadors at the station. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture)
