“Cindy Chavez was crucial in spearheading economic
projects for downtown that are now helping San Jose and the region
recover from the devastating impacts of the economic downturn. Cindy
actively supported bringing BART to San Jose as well as to increase
access to affordable housing.”
Congressman Mike Honda
The BART to San Jose project represents the final link
needed to complete the 20-mile gap in the regional rail system around
San Francisco Bay and tie together the region’s three major metropolitan
centers: San Jose, San Francisco, and Oakland.
Phase 1 of BART to San Jose is currently under
construction and when completed in 2018 will bring BART to the Berryessa
neighborhood of North San Jose.
Phase 2 of BART to San Jose is currently in the planning stage. It will feature a tunnel under Downtown San Jose and ultimately end in the City of Santa Clara near San Jose International Airport.
