Fourth Avenue–Ninth Street is a New York City Subway station complex shared by the IND Culver Line and the BMT Fourth Avenue Line. It is located at the intersection of Ninth Street and Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn, and is served by:

  • F trains at all times
  • R trains at all times except late nights
  • D and N trains late nights
  • M trains rush hours.

From fare control, which is at street level, sets of stairs lead downstairs to the BMT station. Heading to the IND station, stairs lead to a crossunder which connects both of the IND platforms before leading to the platforms themselves.

BMT Fourth Avenue LineEdit

Ninth Street on the BMT Fourth Avenue Line has four tracks and two side platforms. The northbound platform has one exit to 9th Street and a indoor transfer section that leads upstairs to the 4th Avenue F train station. The southbound platform has two exits, one is a part-time exit/entrance at 9th Street and the other is a full time station booth at 10th Street and 4th Avenue, transferring to the F train at that section.

This station was overhauled in the late 1970s. MTA did fix the station's structure and the overall appearance. It replaced the original wall tiles, old signs, and incandescent lighting to the 70's modern look wall tiles, signs and fluorescent lights. It also fixed staircases and platform edges.

IND Culver LineEdit

Fourth Avenue on the IND Culver Line has four tracks and two side platforms, with the express tracks seeing no regular service, although they are used for G trains reversing direction after leaving Smith-Ninth Streets to begin the journey to Queens.

West of this station is a stub-end reversing spur entered only from this station. It is level, between the two express tracks, while the rest of the line ramps up toward Smith-9 Streets. Trains are rarely, if ever, stored here.
