Cottle is a light rail station operated by Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). This station is served by VTA's Alum Rock–Santa Teresa line. It was part of the original Guadalupé Line, the first segment of light rail from Santa Teresa to Tasman.
Cottle station is located in the median of State Route 85, near Cottle Road in the southern part of San Jose, California. It is located very close (one mile) to Caltrain's Blossom Hill station, and is even closer to the local hospital and to the Hitachi Global Storage Technologies campus in South San Jose. Since the Caltrain only serves this area in rush hours on weekdays, the light rail service may be used in other hours, although it is slower. The Blossom Hill Caltrain station is about one mile (1.6 km) from Cottle.
- The station is also served by shuttles to the local Kaiser hospital and to the Hitachi campus.
