Transforming the Gilroy Transit Center
Jolene Bradford

Transforming the Gilroy Transit Center into a livable, walkable, shoppable community near transit is the objective of our newest venture. You are invited to share your ideas that will help shape planning of a proposed development at an upcoming community meeting.

The Gilroy Transit Center is located next to the Gilroy Caltrain Station, on Monterey Highway and 7th Street in Gilroy. Currently this property serves as a Park & Ride lot for VTA bus and Caltrain passengers. The Gilroy Transit Center currently serves VTA bus lines 68, 84, 85, 86, 121, and 168, and provides connections for San Benito County Express, Monterey Salinas Transit lines 55 and 86, Caltrain, and Greyhound Bus. VTA is considering a Transit Oriented Development (TOD) project that could provide additional affordable housing in downtown Gilroy. 

VTA’s Transit Oriented Development Program works with municipal and private partners to encourage the development of housing, retail, and employment centers in places that will help increase transit ridership and contribute to a vibrant community.

During the community meeting, VTA will provide you with the opportunity to learn about VTA’s TOD program. More importantly VTA wants to hear your ideas and feedback to help shape the neighborhood. We value your participation and encourage your attendance at this meeting.

The meeting will be held in English on Feb. 18 and repeated in Spanish on Feb. 24. Both meetings begin at 6 p.m. You can register at the links below:
