South Bay Connect Proposes To...


Relocate Capitol Corridor passenger rail service between the Oakland Coliseum and Newark to the western Coast Subdivision rail line.

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 Capitol Corridor passenger rail service to the existing Union Pacific Railroad Coast Subdivision between Oakland and Newark, which is a more efficient and reliable passenger rail route.

The proposed Project also includes constructing a new passenger rail station at the existing Ardenwood Park-and-Ride on the Coast Subdivision to serve southern Alameda County passengers and create new transbay transit connections to the San Francisco Peninsula.

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.
