San José

Exploring the 28th Street/Little Portugal BART Station Area [Tour]



Five Wounds National Portuguese Church - large white structure with red detailing - view from road

BART Phase II will extend service to downtown San José with three new stations (plus another one in the City of Santa Clara). One of those stations, the 28th Street/Little Portugal station, will reside in San José’s Little Portugal, a community whose strong Portuguese and Latin American identities have made it a destination for arts, architecture, delicious food and a rich culture. The station will serve many multi-generational businesses and the beautiful Five Wounds Portuguese National Parish by connecting San José to Santa Clara, Richmond and San Francisco/Daly City. Join us to learn about the plans for the station area, including a review of approved transit-oriented communities (TOC) policies, the update to the city's Five Wounds Urban Villages Plan, and the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA)'s creation of a design development framework to shape future transit-oriented development on VTA properties.
