In addition to these services, a future BART extension will be located in the station area. The City of San José is currently working with a Google on a major development around the station area.

The Authority, the City of San José, VTA and Caltrain entered into a Cooperative Agreement in 2018 to develop a Concept Plan for the integration of existing and future transit services at a new, expanded Diridon Station and in 2020, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) was added to the Cooperative Agreement. The vision is to deliver a world-class expanded transportation hub that provides seamless customer access between transit modes within the station and into the surrounding areas, downtown San José and providing a regional and statewide link. This planning effort is incorporated under the Diridon Integrated Station Concept (DISC) and is a collaborative effort of the five agencies.
