SR-84 Intermodal Bus Facility
The State Route 84 (SR-84) Intermodal Bus Facility Project is proposed by Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA) in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The bus facility would enhance Transbay bus and shuttle service connections from Alameda County to the counties on the San Francisco Peninsula and build upon other regional transit efforts that promote and encourage multimodal access and connectivity.
The SR-84 Intermodal Bus Facility Project’s (the Project) proposed location is on SR-84 adjacent to the existing Ardenwood Park & Ride, on the border between Fremont and Newark. The Project is being designed to:
- Connect transit and private employer shuttle services with future improvements at the Ardenwood Park & Ride
- Allow buses and shuttles to pick-up and drop-off passengers at an elevated highway level for improved operational efficiency
- Create a more direct route at the Ardenwood Park & Ride entrance/exit to reduce congestion and travel time
Caltrans is the lead agency for California Environmental Quality Act/National Environmental Policy Act (CEQA/NEPA) compliance. Visit the Environmental page for more details. CCJPA is the sponsor agency of the Project.
Connecting public transit and private employee shuttle services with future transit improvements like the Capitol Corridor South Bay Connect Project at Ardenwood Park & Ride will deliver the following benefits:
Improve Access, Reliability & Travel Times for Regional Buses
Encourage the Shift from Car to Bus & Rail
Promote & Improve Multimodal Transbay Connectivity in the Area
Linking Alameda County to Peninsula Counties with Improved Transbay Connectivity
Project Area Map
Two design alternatives are being studied for the SR-84 Intermodal Bus Facility:
1 Alternative 1 Median Bus Stop
This design option would have both the east and westbound buses/shuttles stop at a median platform between the existing SR-84 travel lanes. From this platform in the median, passengers would access the Ardenwood Park & Ride (and future Ardenwood train station) via an elevator or stairs to a pedestrian path below SR-84.
2 Alternative 2 Split Bus Stop
This design option would have westbound buses utilize a platform on the outside shoulder of SR-84, and eastbound buses utilize a platform in the median. Passengers would still access the Ardenwood Park & Ride (and future Ardenwood train station) via an elevator or stairs to a pedestrian path below SR-84. However, in this option, there would be separate elevator/stairs for the westbound and eastbound platforms.
