Transit Village Construction Project Update at San Carlos Caltrain Station

Starting Monday, April 2, 2018, at 6 a.m., the entrance to the plaza area in front of the station depot off El Camino Real and San Carlos Avenue will be permanently closed to traffic, except for construction vehicles.

Passenger drop offs or pickups will NOT be allowed in this area. Please use the new Transit Center parking lot accessible from El Camino Real and Olive Street. Allow yourself extra time to meet your train.

Pedestrian Access

A pedestrian walkway through the plaza area accessible from El Camino Real and San Carlos Avenue gives Caltrain patrons access to the north and southbound Caltrain platforms.

The mixed-use transit-oriented project, the San Carlos Transit Village, is a joint development between SamTrans and Prometheus Real Estate Group. For information about the San Carlos Transit Village Project, visit
