San Jose

The California High-Speed Rail Authority is planning to stop at the Diridon Station in San Jose. That station already serves Caltrain and other transit modes near the downtown area.

The Authority, the City of San Jose, 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. The vision is to deliver a world-class transportation hub that provides seamless customer experience for movement between transit modes within the station and into the surrounding areas and downtown San Jose.
