The Downtown Campbell station was constructed as part of the Vasona Extension. 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.
This location is where Campbell's first train station was located, the Campbell Depot. Originally built in 1866 as part of the South Pacific Coast Railroad connecting Oakland with Santa Cruz with narrow gauge service and breaking Southern Pacific's monopoly.
