South Bay Connect Proposes To...

Create a new transbay station location in Fremont at Ardenwood for transit passengers that are heading to the Peninsula.

Construct rail infrastructure improvements to benefit both freight and passenger rail operational efficiency.


Project Area Map

South Bay Connect proposes to relocate the Capitol Corridor passenger rail service between the Oakland Coliseum and Newark from the Union Pacific Railroad (UP) Niles Subdivision to the Coast Subdivision for a faster, more direct route.

It will also create new Transbay connections for passengers between the East Bay and Peninsula by connecting to bus and shuttle services at the Ardenwood Station.

The relocation will facilitate the separation of passenger and freight rail, resulting in improved rail operations, efficiency, and reliability while minimizing rail congestion within the corridor.
