Hillsdale Caltrain Station Temporarily Closes

Hillsdale Caltrain Station Temporary Closure 

As of Saturday May 16, Caltrain’s Hillsdale Station is temporarily closed for up to six months as part of the 25th Avenue Grade Separation Project.

During the closure, trains will not serve the Hillsdale Station. Passengers are advised to use the Belmont Station instead. To accommodate San Mateo riders, Belmont Station parking will be free of charge for Caltrain customers until the newly constructed Hillsdale Station opens in the fall. For more information on station access alternatives, including free connecting SamTrans bus and shuttle service, visit

Due to COVID-19 and low ridership, Caltrain continues to operate reduced weekday service with all trains making local stops. Weekend Baby Bullet service will move from Hillsdale to the Belmont Station. Departure times at all other stations will remain the same. Updated weekday and weekend timetables effective May 16 are available online at

Customers are advised to plan accordingly as the temporary station closure may add additional time to your commute.

Upon completion of construction, the Hillsdale Station will be relocated about one block north of its current location, between 28th and 31st Avenues. The new station will have an elevated center-boarding platform allowing for safer, more convenient pedestrian access.
