Atherton Station is a weekend-only Caltrain station located in Atherton, California. It serves the 32 Saturday and 28 Sunday local Caltrains and does not serve weekday trains or weekend Baby Bullet trains. Shuttle service to Redwood City was previously provided; however, due to low ridership, it was discontinued on July 1, 2007.[2]

Station amenities[edit]

  • Caltrain ticket machines
  • 8-Ride ticket validators

Hold-out rule[edit]

Because of the narrow center platform, a hold-out rule had been instituted at this station, allowing only one train to enter the station at a time.
