This station is normally served by Mountain View - Winchester Mountain View - Winchester line with direct service from Campbell, Downtown San Jose, North Santa Clara and Mountain View.

VTA now provides special light rail trains from Santa Teresa and South San Jose directly to San Jose Diridon Station before (and return service after) Sharks home games.

If special service is not available, riders on the Alum Rock - Santa Teresa Alum Rock - Santa Teresa line can transfer to Mountain View - Winchester trains at Convention Center Station (San Jose), or simply get off at Santa Clara Station in downtown San Jose and walk west for 1/2 mile on Santa Clara Street to SAP Center.

Riders are encouraged to use Clipper or purchase 8-hour excursion pass to avoid lines to buy tickets after the event.

The nearest stop for Amtrak and Altamont Corridor Express is San Jose Diridon Station. Neither provide special service for SAP Center events.


SAP Center is located one block north of Caltrain's San Jose Diridon Station. There's no special service to the games, but Caltrain may delay train #197 and #451 up to 15 minutes after Sharks games.
