Architecture/public art[edit]

The station's platform shelter is architecturally unique as compared with the other shelters used in the system. The shelter features a brick facade and a roofline that blends more naturally with the surrounding buildings. This is one of the many VTA Light Rail stations that only fits 2 cars.

There is no public art currently on display at this station.


The Downtown Campbell station was constructed as part of the Vasona Extension.[1] It was dedicated August 12, 2005, but was not opened for revenue service until October 1, 2005, due to the delay in obtaining waiver from Federal Railroad Administration.

This location is where Campbell's first train station was located, the Campbell Depot. Originally built in 1866 as part of the South Pacific Coast Railroad connecting Oakland with Santa Cruz with narrow gauge service and breaking Southern Pacific's monopoly.[2]
