the topic starter told about more than three, which however is dependent on some conditions. In the Netherlands, almost each station already has the train, some bicycle racks, a car parking and a bus stop. Even counting a taxi is still easy, but the real difference is being made with IC connections, trams, metro's and at airports (airplanes). Or it might be the incredible frequencies and elaborate network of just one of these modes.

In other countries it is much less usual to have it all. Kertomenanggal (Surabaya) only gives you the option to walk and actually only on one side of the station. And if you are lucky you can park on the street adjacent to the station.

Prohibit the construction of new single-family dwellings without stacking apartments in Amsterdam (A10), Rotterdam (motorway ring), The Hague, Utrecht (outer ring), Eindhoven (ring), Tilburg (ringbanen) and Groningen (provincial ring)!

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!

Euston station is several hundred metres away from St Pancras/Kings Cross, connected only by surface-streets. Unlike the latter two Euston is a station of its own.

As for best connected hub in Europe, try Brussel Zuid or Frankfurt(M)Hbf. These stations offer services to destinations in five different countries bar their own.

How about train, bus, and ferry?

Sydney - Circular Quay
Trains upstairs, with buses and ferries downstairs.

do you suffer from that thing where you only read one half of a sentence?
Look at the proposed CR2 map. I meant connected to their immediate urban vicinity because let's just include Heathrow in that case and Brussels can take a back seat then lol
