San Jose Airport is not directly connected to the rail network.

Take a look below to see the available rail options in Santa Clara county:

VTA Light Rail

By the VTA Light Rail you can connect straight to San Jose downtown by the VTA Free Airport Flyer (VTA bus route no.10).

You just need to board it in the Eastbound direction. The next stop is Metro Light Rail Station.

Once at the Metro/Airport Station, you will be in the Mountain View – Winchester line (the green line).

In order to link with other rail services (Catrain, ACE or Capitol Corridor) you can either get to Lick Mill stop (Mountain View direction) or to San Jose Diridon (Winchester direction).

Altamont Corridor Express (capitol), Amtrak and Caltrain

By VTA Airport Flyer route no.10 you can also link to the rail services offered by Altamont Corridor Express (capitol), Amtrak and Caltrain.

You just need to board it Westbound direction (Santa Clara Transit Center or Caltrain).

By Capitol Corridor you can get to cities like Sacramento, by Caltrain to San Francisco and the whole California Peninsula, and by Amtrak to Silicon Valley, especially Tracy and Stockton.


The VTA Airport Flyer route no.10 can be board at the bus stop in both Terminal A and Terminal B.


VTA offers all its services at the same cost – That means there are the same fares for both the VTA bus and the Light Rail.

See attached the fare chart for a one-way ride:

- Adult: USD$ 2.50
- Adult Express: USD$ 5.00
- Youth: USD$ 1.25
- Senior: USD$ 1.00

On the other hand, the Clipper card may be useful if you are planning to take further rides on the VTA public transport service.

Where can I buy my ticket?

Tickets can be purchased either at VTA ticket booths in Arrivals or on board to the driver.
