Proposed Removal[edit]

Part of SCVTA's Light Rail Efficiency Project plan is to add a second track between Mountain View Station and Whisman Station. To avoid having to narrow Central Expressway and Evelyn Avenue to accomplish this, the closure and removal of Evelyn station has been proposed. The station is, according to SCVTA, the second least-utilized station on the Light Rail system. The station can currently only be accessed via a pedestrian tunnel on Evelyn Avenue. The park and ride lot across the street from the station is planned to remain open.
