Curtner Station Transit Oriented Development

The Curtner Station is a roughly 4-acre property located along SR-87 and Curtner Avenue in San Jose and serves as a Park & Ride Lot for Light Rail and Bus passengers. The Curtner Station is currently served by VTA’s Blue Line and bus line 26.

This land has the potential for mixed-use Transit-Oriented Development (TOD).  Projects that are transit-oriented allow people to live and work near public transportation, which helps clear the air, ease traffic, and adds infrastructure investments to the community.

VTA's Transit-Oriented Development Program works with municipal, non-profit, 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.

VTA's Board of Directors selected developer partners, Bayview Development Group and Civil & Building North America Inc., at the December 2020 board meeting.  VTA is working together with the developer, the community, and the City of San Jose to finalize the project program. 

Additionally, the Project site is located within City of San Jose's Urban Village Plan (location: VR8). Zoning and permitting will be subject to the Signature Review process as required by the City of San Jose.

Curtner Station Access Study Survey​​​​​

We want to improve the rider experience for customers who utilize the Curtner Station, and we need your help.

A new survey seeks to better understand how folks use the Station, and what changes they wish to see in the future. It asks questions like …

  • How do you use VTA’s Curtner Station?
  • Do you walk, ride your bike, park your car and take transit?
  • What improvements would enhance the station?
  • Is the station accessible to you?
  • Is lighting adequate?

… to name a few. Provide your input in the Curtner Station Access Study Survey by February 18. The survey is available in EnglishSpanishVietnameseChinese and Tagalog.

Some Background

Last fall, VTA held a community meeting providing an update on the Curtner Station Transit-Oriented Development Project. An element of the project is the Curtner Station Access Study, which launched with a few pop-up events after the community meeting was held. The in-person outreach provided an opportunity for staff to meet one-on-one with members of the community. Altogether, staff received feedback regarding traffic and safety concerns, station accessibility, and desired improvements for the station and development area.

Further Dialogue

We want to make sure we reach as many people that use and/or live nearby the Curtner Station. Your participation in this survey will help us prioritize the community and VTA customer values on proposed improvements to bicycle and pedestrian access, lighting, and signage.  

Community Outreach

On September 9, 2021, VTA held an online community meeting to introduce the developer’s team, discuss station access, and share the next steps and what to expect going forward.  Did you miss it?  You can download the presentation and watch the recorded meeting via YouTube

Previous Meetings

Community meetings were held in January, and October 2018. The January 2018 Community Meeting Presentation, and the October 2018 Community Meeting Presentation are available for review and download.

If you would like a presentation to your organization or neighborhood association about this project, or other VTA activities, please contact us.
