Cloverdale Depot is a bus station and future intermodal station in Cloverdale, California. It is served by Amtrak Thruway and Sonoma County Transit[1] buses. Additional service to Sonoma County Airport station is provided by Sonoma County Transit under contract by Sonoma–Marin Area Rail Transit.[1]

History[edit]

A rail station previously served Cloverdale along the original Northwestern Pacific Railroad – that station was destroyed in a fire in 1991,[2] the rail line was rerouted to its current right of way to make room for U.S. Route 101 and the current station was built in 1998 with the anticipation of future rail service.[3] The depot must legally serve as the northern terminus of the Sonoma–Marin Area Rail Transit main line; it will open to passenger trains after further phases of construction. The 2018 California State Rail Plan calls for the station to see SMART service by 2027.[4]
