At The Plaza Foster City, we understand convenience is key. Our location is centrally located between San Francisco and San Jose, with easy access to both BART and CalTrans. Whether utilizing transit for work or for play – we make it easier to get to your destination. Skip the traffic and ride in style. Our closest station is just over 1 mile from your front door at The Plaza!

Caltrain provides commuter rail service along the San Francisco Peninsula, through the South Bay to San Jose and Gilroy. Find Your Way

And…the Baby Bullet serves BOTH our nearby Hillsdale and San Mateo Stations on weekdays and weekends! Baby Bullet is the name given to Caltrain’s express service. Baby Bullet trains stop at only a handful of stations along the Peninsula to reduce travel times to just less than an hour between San Francisco and San Jose. There’s no extra charge to ride the Baby Bullet. Get The Schedule

Here’s what Vivek P. had to say: about the nearby Hillsdale Caltrain Station on Yelp:
What I like about the Hillsdale Caltrain Station is that there are lots of parking options and many express trains stop here.  There are parking lots on all 3 sides of the station which is key when you’re like me and always cutting it down to the last moment.  One time the train passed me while I was driving up El Camino and still managed to park and make onto the train before it left the station.

Caltrain is the best way to get to AT&T Park from the South Bay and Peninsula. Giants fans love Caltrain! Did you know? In 2012, 545,000 fans took Caltrain to AT&T Park. Since Caltrain’s San Francisco Terminal at Fourth and King Streets is just one block from AT&T Park, riding the train is part of the fun.
