The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) and the city of San Jose, Calif., yesterday announced an agreement that will provide $600,000 in federal and state funds for the city's Diridon Station.
The station area planning agreement is aimed at ensuring collaboration between local and regional transportation partners as they develop new intermodal transportation opportunities, including high-speed rail.The pact also is intended to encourage transit-oriented development (TOD) and "smart growth policies" surrounding the station in San Jose, CHSRA officials said in a press release.Located on the west side of the city's downtown, the Diridon Station serves as a major transit hub for Caltrain, Amtrak, Altamont Commuter Express, and Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority light-rail and bus service. Future plans include high-speed rail service and a future Bay Area Rapid Transit extension.Previous station planning has resulted in the development of the Diridon Station Area Plan, which lays the groundwork for high-density and TOD surrounding the station.Through yesterday's agreement, San Jose will receive $400,000 in federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds and an additional $200,000 in state funds to advance the station area planning process.CHSRA has entered into similar agreements with other California cities, including Merced, Fresno, Bakersfield, Gilroy, Burbank and Palmdale.
