Santa Clara is a light rail station operated by Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) located in the Historic District of Downtown San Jose, California on 1st and 2nd Streets just south of Santa Clara Street. The northbound platform is on 1st Street; the southbound platform is on 2nd Street. The platforms are connected via a walkway named Fountain Alley. Santa Clara station is served by both the Alum Rock–Santa Teresa and Mountain View–Winchester light rail lines.
VTA closed the station for refurbishment from January to May 2007 to allow level boarding at all doors, thus making the station fully wheelchair accessible.
Santa Clara station is planned as a future transfer point between BART (in the second, unfunded phase of an extension from Fremont) and VTA light rail. The BART downtown San Jose subway station is proposed to be built under Santa Clara Street.
