SUNNYVALE, CA-The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority will hold a celebrate this morning the completion of a light rail station, which community leaders hope will also be an asset in attracting future development in the Sunnyvale area.

The Moffett Park Light Rail Station cost approximately $5.7 million to build. It is the 19th station on VTA’s Downtown Mountain View to Interstate Highway 880/Milpitas Light Rail Line. It will serve employees of Ariba, Onizuka Air Force Base, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space Corp. and the general public.

The new depot is the result of a public and private collaboration between VTA and Jay Paul Company. Jay Paul Company financed the construction of the station as part of an adjacent commercial development, Moffett Park Drive, which is located at 801-811 Eleventh Avenue.

From San Jose, trains will run every ten minutes across north Santa Clara and Sunnyvale to Mountain View. Connection points with the existing San Jose light rail line, the Caltrain route, and the ACE trains from Stockton expand its range considerably.
