Since 2010, Caltrain customers have been using a temporary boarding platform on Huntington Avenue near Sylvan Avenue. Yesterday was the last day of service at that site. The new station is a half-mile to the north at 833 San Mateo Avenue. This is a $155 million project.
There are now elevated Caltrain tracks at three separate crossings in San Bruno. According to Caltrain, the grade-separated crossings improve safety conditions for both pedestrians and motorists in San Bruno, while also easing traffic congestion to and from Highway 101.
The San Mateo County Transportation Authority provided $92.5 million for the safety-improvement project, with the remaining funding coming from state and federal sources.
To ensure that customers are aware of the station move, Caltrain has posted flyers, placed notices on car windshields, and is adding alerts to its electronic messaging system and onboard announcements from conductors about the move.
