Construction to Begin on Caltrain’s Sunnyvale Station Rehabilitation Project


Work is scheduled to begin next week on Monday, March 12, on the Sunnyvale Station Rehabilitation Project. The project is designed to make the station safer for all passengers. The project will relocate the north pedestrian crossing by 83 feet, which will allow a six-car train to load and unload at the station platform without blocking the existing pedestrian crossings. In addition, the project will update the concrete surfaces at the station that have become uneven, posing a potential tripping hazard.

Construction will take place during the day, and is scheduled to be finished by fall of this year. Neighbors may experience construction noise and light during these times and can sign up for a weekly construction notice here.

Starting in April, the southern bike car on all southbound trains will not be accessible for boarding or deboarding at Sunnyvale Station for approximately eight weeks. Bicyclists bringing their bikes onboard will be asked to board onto the northern bike car.

The project, funded by a combination of local and Caltrain funds, is estimated to cost $750,000.


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 more than five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 65,000 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.
