|Phase I||Phase II|
|Santa Clara Station|
In keeping with voter-approved Measure A, VTA is committed to delivering the full 16-mile extension of the BART line to Santa Clara County, known as VTA's BART Silicon Valley Extension. Work continues for Phase II of the project, which will include a 5-mile-long subway tunnel through downtown San Jose, will extend the BART system from the planned Berryessa Extension terminus for approximately six miles, ending at-grade in Santa Clara near the Caltrain Station. As part of the environmental document, multiple station location options are being studied for the Downtown San Jose Station and the Diridon Station. In addition, two different tunneling construction methodologies are being studied – twin bore tunneling and single bore tunneling.
Santa Clara Station
The terminus of the VTA's BART Silicon Valley Extension would be Santa Clara Station, located adjacent to the Santa Clara Caltrain Station and Santa Clara University. Santa Clara Station would be a ground-level station, with a below-ground concourse. The station would also include a bus transit center, bicycle storage facilities, passenger drop-off/pick-up areas, and a multi-level parking structure.
