BART to Silicon Valley

BART aims to begin passenger service on its Silicon Valley extension in 2020.

The extension will run 10 miles from the new Warm Springs/South Fremont station to new stations in Milpitas and the Berryessa district of San Jose.

Milpitas & Berryessa Stations

The Milpitas station is located between Montague Expressway and Capitol Avenue. The Berryessa station is between Berryessa Road and Mabury Road.

MTC has been a key advocate in securing funding for the Silicon Valley extension through the Federal Transit Administration’s New Starts program.

These funds account for about 39 percent of the $2.3 billion project cost. Other sources include:

  • 51 percent from the 2000 Santa Clara County Measure A sales tax
  • 10 percent from the state Traffic Congestion Relief Program

The BART Silicon Valley extension is a partnership between BART and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority.

VTA will own all of the property, facilities and related equipment, while BART will operate and maintain the system under an agreement with VTA.

The BART Silicon Valley extension will feature two lines of service between these stations:

  • Berryessa and Daly City
  • Berryessa and Richmond

Trains on each line are expected to arrive and depart every 15 minutes.
