Architecture/public art[edit]

The station's platform shelter is architecturally unique as compared with the other shelters used in the system. The shelter features a brick facade and a roofline that blends more naturally with the surrounding buildings. This is one the many VTA Light Rail stations that only fits 2 cars.

There is no public art currently on display at this station.

History[edit]

The Downtown Campbell station was constructed as part of the Vasona Extension.[1] It was dedicated August 12, 2005, but was not opened for revenue service until October 1, 2005, due to the delay in obtaining waiver from Federal Railroad Administration.
