Downtown Mountain View Station is an intermodal passenger transportation station that serves the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority light rail system, Caltrain commuter rail line, and numerous bus and shuttle routes. Downtown Mountain View is the northern terminus of the Mountain View-Winchester light rail line. The station house was rebuilt, in the early 2000s,[2] using the style of a station house type (SP#18) built by the Southern Pacific in 1888.[3]
