Document Description
Note: Extended Per Lead VTA's BART Extension would extend the BART system from the phase I terminus in the Berryessa neighborhood of San Jose for approximately 6 miles through central San Jose and terminate in Santa Clara. The alignment would include an approximately 5-mile long tunnel, or subway, through downtown San Jose and an end of the line maintenance facility. Four stations are under consideration: Alum Rock/28th St, Downtown San Jose, Diridon, and Santa Clara. Depending upon funding availability, initial revenue service on the BART Extension alternative is targeted to begin in late 2025/2026. VTA is proposing to construct transit-oriented joing development at the four BART stations and at two mid-tunnel ventilation structure locations.
