San Jose Diridon Station
Construction Work Affects San Jose Station Parking
July 18, 2016 to Jan 31, 2017: The City of San Jose is scheduled to rehabilitate the existing pump station at W. Santa Clara Street (next to the Caltrain Santa Clara Street Bridge).
Because the project requires deep excavation for the drainage structure, the work will affect the following parking areas:
- Parking spaces 447-450 to the south of the pump station, along the wall
- Motorcycle parking spaces 451-455 to the east of the Pump Station
- Parking spaces 456-459 to the east of the motorcycle parking/pump station
The project will not affect the flow of traffic in the parking areas:
We appreciate your cooperation during this improvement project. Thank you for your patience.

The SAP Center and neighboring businesses also make parking available to Caltrain customers. Click HERE for more information.
Through a long-time partnership with the SAP Center, parking and rates are managed by the SAP Center beginning approximately two-and-a-half hours before SAP Center events, However, the higher rate can't start before 9 a.m. on weekdays. Caltrain Monthly and Daily parking permits aren't valid when the SAP Center is managing the lots. Caltrain customers already parked before the SAP Center rates go into effect aren't impacted by the higher rate.
Ticket Vending Machines
There are 5 Caltrain ticket machines, 4 of which are near the ramp down to the tracks. The 5th ticket machine is at the bottom of the ramp leading to the VTA light rail station. A Clipper Add-value machine is located outside the lobby. All Caltrain products and Clipper cash can be loaded onto Clipper cards. Clipper cards also can be loaded using a VTA ticket machine.
Caltrain makes being sustainable easy. Customers are encouraged to place paper, glass/cans, food and trash in the same waste container. The contents make their way to Newby Island Resource Recovery Park where machinery and trained staff sort all contents for appropriate recycling or landfill.
Five pay phones are located in concourse
