Santa Clara Station

Santa Clara Station, located adjacent to the Santa Clara Caltrain Station and Santa Clara University, will be the end of the line station for VTA's BART Phase II Extension.  

Santa Clara is located in the center of Silicon Valley and is home to the headquarters of several high-tech companies. It is also home to Santa Clara University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the state of California, and Levi’s Stadium, home of the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers. Santa Clara is bordered by San José, Sunnyvale, and Cupertino. The Santa Clara Station is planned to be located adjacent to the Santa Clara Transit Center, Santa Clara University, and a quick walk to Avaya Stadium. 

Santa Clara Station will be a ground-level station, with a below-ground concourse. The station will also include a bus transit center, bicycle storage facilities, passenger drop-off/pick-up areas, and a multi-level parking structure. Parking will be integrated with mixed use development, creating a transit oriented community.
