Getting around

All of the Bay Area’s major roads lead to downtown San Jose. And finding parking is easy in a ParkSJ garage.

Downtown is also the hub for Light Rail and VTA bus systems. A free shuttle (the DASH) runs through downtown and to Diridon Station, with its Caltrain, Amtrak and ACE service. The Mineta San Jose International Airport is only 10 minutes away.

Use the City of San Jose’s Interactive Map to find the way around downtown.
