Alum Rock/28th Street Station is a proposed underground Bay Area Rapid Transit station in eastern San Jose, California, located west of Highway 101 and north of E. Santa Clara Street.[1]. Preceded by the Berryessa/North San Jose BART station, it would be the first station of the Phase II portion of the Silicon Valley BART extension. The station would have direct service to Santa Clara, Richmond, and San Francisco/Daly City.

History[edit]

A separate extension[2] was built from Fremont to Warm Springs station in the Warm Springs District (also in Fremont). This was followed by VTA's BART Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension into eastern San Jose. The entire San Jose/Santa Clara extension, including Alum Rock/28th Street Station, was originally intended to be built in a single project, but funding could not be secured; therefore, the San Jose extension was split into two phases, and Alum Rock was placed in the second phase. If funding is secured, construction is slated to begin in 2019, and open to passenger service in 2026,[3] this station will be located between the Berryessa and Downtown San Jose Station. This station will connect with the VTA buses.
