San Carlos Caltrain Station Parking Lot Closes for Construction

San Carlos Caltrain Station Parking Lot Closes for Construction


The parking lot on the north side of the San Carlos Caltrain Station will be permanently closed as of Tuesday, July 18, at 2 a.m. Caltrain riders are encouraged to park at the newly-completed south lot located at El Camino Real and Cherry Avenue.

The north lot has been closed in order to be redeveloped as part of the San Carlos Transit Village. Construction will begin shortly on the next phase of the project, which when completed will include 200 new apartment units. All cars must be removed from the north lot as of 4 a.m. on July 18 or vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Currently, the south lot can only be accessed via El Camino Real while heading north. Caltrain is awaiting Department of Transportation approval to install a new traffic signal and roadway improvements at the intersection of El Camino Real and Cherry Avenue to allow for left turns.

Designated ADA and Depot Café parking will still be accessible through the San Carlos Avenue entrance.


About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the system, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
