Because of the narrow center platform, a hold-out rule was in effect at this station, where only one train could enter at a time (similar to the South San Francisco Station). With the completion of new northbound and southbound side platforms in early 2008 the hold-out rule has been eliminated. This change increased concerns over pedestrian safety. A few months later, a former resident, unaware of the change, was struck and killed by a northbound train.
On February 25, 2008, Caltrain opened the new northbound platform at the station. This included new ticket machines, wheelchair accessibility, and LED-indicator signs. On April 1, Caltrain opened the newly renovated southbound platform. The temporary southbound platform extension that lengthened the platform by about 100 feet to the north was then demolished.
