    Interchange station between Santa Clara VTA, Monterey Salinas Transit, Altamont Commuter Express, Amtrak Capitol Corridor and Highway 17. Attending San Jose State University? This is your station!

    Catch a BoltBus straight to LA's Union Station. No ticket sales at boarding time, so buy your ticket online.

    Get here with some time to spare. The schedule for trains is incredibly archaic.

    The Caltrain lots fill up before 8am

    Bolt has a restroom in the bus. Power outlets available. Catch the buses at their first stops to get a seat of choice or u will see people sleeping on two seats. Ok Recliner seats.

    If you arrived way too early to catch Megabus to LA which leaves at 12:35 pm... Come inside the station and have a snack. Pretty good popcorn and will save you from burning outside waiting for bus.

    Pick up area. Please don't park here

    Don't forget to Tag Off!

    Buy monthly parking at the SAP center. It's $5 more, but you're always guaranteed a spot.

    Steven Lewis · January 15, 2014
  • Brian S.

    Make sure you're on the right track!

    Use the VTA ticket machines to add money to your clipper card and buy passes for the other transit agencies. The machines are faster and easier to use than ones in the train depot.

    lauren short · December 11, 2013

    Arriving after 8:00am will limit your parking options. Street parking is now same price as parking lot at $4.00 or you can park across the street on top of the SAP center for $3.00

    Mark Lewis · September 16, 2013

    The waiting room gets hot and muggy. Just wait outside where there is nice breeze.

    Know the rules of the bike car. You can find them here.

    The men's bathrooms are not very clean and I think there is a homeless person living in one of the stalls.

    There are outlets at all the tables on the second level of the train.

    Popcorn is not bad. $1.50

    Use the snack bar, family owned for 50 years.

    Cute little station!

    Remember to get the number from your parking space if you are going to park in caltrain's parking lots. You need them when you pay for parking. You don't have to go back to your car.

    Jon Sanchez · June 6, 2013
  • Jon S.

    Doors are locked early in morning. Go around back.

    Jon Sanchez · June 5, 2013
  • Jon S.

    No feet on the seats. Don't talk loud on your phone. Respect the space of others when you can. All will be happy!

    Jon Sanchez · June 5, 2013
  • Jon S.

    Get there early to buy the monthly parking permit. It's easy to spend 15 minutes walking back and forth after buying the permit.

    Jon Sanchez · June 4, 2013
  • Jon S.

    I didn't know you could drink beer on the train?

    Jon Sanchez · May 31, 2013
  • Jon S.

    $4 parking. Use atm's inside. Don't forget to remember your parking slot number. Clipper card holders: Remember to tag on and off or it could cost you a lot more.

    Jon Sanchez · May 28, 2013
  • they all call her a.

    Bring your rolling suitcase because the "subway" tunnels can get long when you have to switch tracks . . . Capital corridor rocks though!!

  • ben d.

    This station can be tricky to navigate - look for timetable signs as they will guide you to the correct track. Most weekday SF bound trains depart from tracks 2 and 3, weekends tracks 4 or 5.

    ben daniels · April 28, 2013
  • Howard H.

    Great place to cruise hot guys!

    Howard Harbottle-Moreno · April 2, 2013

    Hang out at the station for a bit and watch the planes fly into San Jose International Airport.

    Area around the station is a little shady, but not bad in the daytime. There are a lot of good places a few blocks away for a quick bite to eat or drink.

    AJ O'Connell · March 26, 2013

    One of the worst run stations in CA. Tons of signs but trains change tracks often & there is no announcement or electronic sign update.

    Shan Vosseller · March 22, 2013

    Rains have cars specifically for those with bikes, those with disabilities & those with luggage. Bonus.

    Wifi on the VTA is free but flaky

    James Field · March 7, 2013

    Bullet at 6:45 always track 5

    Little newsstand sells some food. They close at 8pm today, apparently. I've never seen them open before.

    Staff here isn't very good at making general announcements when trains are delayed.

    Amanda Panda · January 2, 2013
  • Sheila I.

    u never know which platform the train will stop. People are constantly lost asking each other information. The electronic signs are there to decorate the place and tell u what time and day it is..

    Sheila Ioris Wells · December 5, 2012

    Clipper is cheaper.

    Found popcorn Cool

    It's better than driving...sometimes.

    Matt Crawford · October 27, 2012
  • William F.

    If people or objects are blocking the tracks be prepared for a confusing time and possible wait for hours.

    The trains need wifi :/
