San Bruno is a Caltrain station located in San Bruno, California. The station is located just northeast of downtown San Bruno, above the intersection of San Mateo and San Bruno Avenues, adjacent to Artichoke Joe's Casino.


The 2003-reopened station in 2007

The first Southern Pacific Railroad station in San Bruno was located off Huntington Avenue (which parallels the railroad) at Euclid Avenue. It was moved one block south to San Bruno Avenue and expanded in 1916.[3] The second story was removed in 1953. A new station with small concrete and wood shelters opened further south at Sylvan Avenue in 1963, and the old depot was demolished that September.[3]

The construction of the BART extension to San Francisco International Airport and Millbrae required the construction of a BART tunnel under downtown San Bruno. The 1963-opened station was demolished in 1998; in April 1999, the Caltrain stop was moved to a temporary location under the I-380 overpass near the Tanforan Shopping Center to the north. A rebuilt station opened at the Sylvan Avenue site in 2003.[3]

In 2010, construction began on the San Bruno Grade Separation Project, which included new elevated tracks and a new elevated station at San Bruno Avenue. In October 2010, trains began stopping at a temporary station at Georgia Avenue.[4] Trains began using the new elevated tracks on May 26, 2013, and the new station opened on April 1, 2014.[5]
