Airport-Diridon-Stevens Creek Connector

Exploring a faster way to connect Silicon Valley's transportation and employment centers

Can a new transit connection between Mineta San José International Airport (SJC), Diridon Station, and west Santa Clara Valley cities come to life faster and cheaper than conventional approaches? That’s the question several South Bay transportation agencies asked tech, construction, and transit companies through a request for information (RFI) published in July 2019.

The RFI, a collaboration by San José’s departments of transportation and airport, the cities of Cupertino and Santa Clara, and the Valley Transportation Authority, asked firms to discuss potential solutions that could provide “grade-separated mass transit infrastructure and operations at significantly lower cost than traditional transit projects.”

We received 23 responses, discussing a broad range of innovative approaches, including personal rapid transit, mixed-flow autonomous vehicles, Hyperloop, monorails, and magnetic levitation vehicles (known as maglevs). Submissions are listed by respondent name(s) and can be downloaded below:

The responses will be analyzed by an interdisciplinary panel representing all of the involved agencies, with assistance from technical experts. The group will use the information gleaned from the submissions to develop a funding strategy and potentially issue a future request for proposals.
