Santa Teresa is a light rail station operated by Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). This station is the southern terminus of VTA's Alum Rock-Santa Teresa line. It was built in the late 1980s as part of the original Guadalupé Line, the first segment of light rail that stretched to Tasman in northern San Jose.
As with all other stations on the Alum Rock–Santa Teresa line south of the Convention Center station, the Santa Teresa station only provided level boarding at the first door of the lead car via a wooden ramp. VTA planned to close this station from September to November 2008 to allow level boarding at all doors. However, the station remained open during construction through a temporary platform.
Santa Teresa station is located just south of State Route 85, near Santa Teresa Boulevard in the Santa Teresa neighborhood in southern San Jose, California. It is a major local transit center, and as such is the terminus of several bus routes. It is served by a shuttle to IBM's campus in South San Jose.
