Dedicated Transit System to Connect San José Airport and Diridon Station

The City of San José is moving forward with plans to establish a dedicated transit solution to connect the city’s two largest transportation hubs: Diridon Rail Station and San José Mineta International Airport (SJC).

To advance this project, the city council has voted to enter into a pre-development agreement with San José Connection Partners, led by Plenary Americas. This follows a multi-year process with a competitive request for proposals.

San José Mayor Matt Mahan said:

“Diridon Station is poised to become the most significant rail and bus hub on the West Coast in the decades ahead. It just makes sense to connect this central station with San Jose’s exceptional airport, which serves over 11 million people per year.”

The proposed transit solution will use technology from Glydways to operate small, autonomous vehicles along a fixed guideway.

This system is designed to initially carry over 2,000 passengers an hour in each direction.

John Aitken, Director of Aviation said:

“San José Mineta International Airport is on a positive growth trajectory, and our new airport branding sums up what travellers can expect at SJC: Fly Simple. This new transit connection to our terminals will provide another convenient option for our passengers and reiterate why our airport is recognized as the #1 airport in North America for customer experience.”
