The Caltrain Board of Directors voted to close its Atherton station at its November meeting

The antiquated platform configuration of the station does not meet current standards and has limited Caltrain’s operations.

Prior to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Atherton Caltrain Station only received limited weekend-only service every 90 minutes with an average of 114 passengers per weekend day.

Weekday service to the station was cut in 2005 due to low demand.
