The high-speed rail station in Fresno will be conveniently located in the downtown area on H Street between Fresno and Tulare. It will include an entrance on the historic Mariposa Street alignment and a smaller entrance towards Chinatown.

This station will be perfect for baseball lovers, as Chukchansi Park and the Fresno Grizzlies are just across the street. Within just a little more than a half-mile walk, you’ll be able to get to the County and Federal Courthouses as well as Fresno City Hall. Fresno State University is located about six miles north of the station, and can be easily accessed using Fresno Area Express (FAX) as the FAX station is less than a quarter mile from the Fresno station. Riders who would like to explore Yosemite National Park will also be able to connect with Yosemite Area Regional Transportation System, offering public transportation to one of the country’s most beautiful national parks.

The City of Fresno and the California High-Speed Rail Authority are currently continuing to work together to develop a station area plan that will serve downtown Fresno, Fresno and Madera counties. In Fall 2018, the City of Fresno and the Authority issued a Station District Master Plan with the goal of continuing the revitalization efforts already ongoing in the area and preparing for the future station.
