Downtown San Jose BART station is a proposed underground Bay Area Rapid Transit station in San Jose, California. The station would be co-located with the Santa Clara Light Rail Station and connect to the proposed Santa Clara, Richmond and San Francisco/Daly City stations.[1] It would be preceded by the proposed Alum Rock BART station. Revenue service is envisioned to start in 2025.

Background and plans[edit]

An extension of BART into Santa Clara county is under construction. The original plan for the San Jose extension included the Downtown San Jose station, but funding could not be secured[2] and the San Jose extension was split into two phases. Phase one, planned for completion in 2018, is the Berryessa Extension[3] into eastern San Jose. The proposed Downtown San Jose station is part of a later, unfunded phase two of the San Jose subway extension[4] and would be located between the proposed Alum Rock and proposed Diridon/Arena BART stations. Construction is slated to begin in 2018, with a scheduled completion in 2025.[5]
