|Phase I||Phase II|
Phase I of VTA's BART Silicon Valley Extension is the 10-mile Berryessa Extension. This extension of the BART system begins at the Warm Springs Station in Fremont, proceeds through Milpitas and ends in the Berryessa area of north San Jose. It includes two new BART stations that are part of two bigger, new transit centers: the Milpitas Transit Center and the Berryessa Transit Center. When BART service to Santa Clara County begins, the Milpitas and Berryessa/North San José BART Stations are intended to be served by two lines providing direct and connecting service to the entire BART system.
The extension brings BART commuters into Silicon Valley with convenient connections to VTA bus, VTA light rail, and bicycle and pedestrian trails. This will serve major employers such as Cisco Systems, Adobe and eBay. New developments, including housing, commercial and retail space, are being built near both the Milpitas Transit Center & the Berryessa Transit Center.
