Document Description
The BART Extension Project would begin at the planned BART Warm Springs Station (to be implemented by 2013) in Fremont and proceed on the former Union Pacific Railroad right-of-way through Milpitas to near Las Plumas Avenue in San Jose. The extension would then descend into a subway tunnel, continue through downtown San Jose, and terminate at the grade in Santa Clara near the Caltrain Station. The total length of the alignment would be 16.1 miles. Six stations are proposed with an additional future station in Milpitas. Passenger service for the BART Extension Project would start in 2016, assuming funding is available.
