On-site notices will be provided at least 72 hours in advance before the removal of parking. Caltrain customers are encouraged to park at the Belmont Caltrain Station during construction.

Background
The San Carlos Multi-Modal Transit Center Project (Transit Center) is located on the west side of the railroad corridor at the site of the existing San Carlos Caltrain Station. The Transit Center project consists of transforming the existing San Carlos Caltrain Station parking lot into a multi-modal transit center that will better serve the community by improving safety and accessibility between SamTrans fixed route bus services, Caltrain commuter rail services, local shuttles, pedestrians and bicyclists. For more information on the project, please visit
www.samtrans.com/sctc.

The Transit Center project is part of the larger mixed-use transit-oriented development, the San Carlos Transit Village, which is a joint development between SamTrans and Prometheus Real Estate Group.  For information about the San Carlos Transit Village Project visit:  http://cityofsancarlos.org/planning/projects/san_carlos_transit_village/default.asp
