    I mean, it's a train station. But its close to the shopping center and TGI Fridays if there are delays.

    When the train arrives, don't stand in front of the doors. When you do, people can't get off the train.

  • Bernadette W.

    Only the ticket machine on the left works properly most days.

    Parking usually fills up fast, so get here before 9AM!

    Next stop, Maker Faire! Head North on El Camino Real Blvd., take a right onto 25th Ave. and the San Mateo Event Center will be at the end of the street.

    After buying your ticket please move AWAY from the machines so those who have yet to buy theirs, can before the train comes.

    Packed on Fridays, you would want to come early and stand right in front of the doors that open up at 5:00pm.

    Shares a parking lot with and is steps from TGI Fridays! Sometimes there are vintage car shows in the lot! You can also walk to the Mall for other food options and stop by Trader Joes for groceries. Read more
