Tamien Station is an intermodal passenger transportation station served by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) light rail system, two bus routes, and the Caltrain commuter rail line. The station has two distinct elevated rail platforms – one for Caltrain, the other for light rail. Each is a center platform with two trackways (one on each side). The two platforms are connected by a walkway at ground-level that is below the two platforms.
Currently, Caltrain does not serve this station during the middle of the day on weekdays. On weekends, a Caltrain shuttle bus instead of a train connects Tamien to the San Jose Diridon station.
Address: 1355 Lick Avenue , San Jose, California
Nearest cross-street: West Alma Avenue
The light rail platform is located in the center median of the State Route 87 freeway just north of the Alma Avenue overpass. The Caltrain platform is located between Lick Avenue and State Route 87, just north of Alma Avenue.
