Caltrain is Mere Steps Away from The Apartment Collection

Situate yourself in the heart of everywhere when you call Bay Meadows home. A true transit-oriented community with the Hillsdale Caltrain within walking distance, the Apartment Collection at Bay Meadows in San Mateo serves up life and living just the way you want. Adjacent to our neighborhood and close to the Hillsdale Shopping Center, the new elevated Hillsdale Station is approximately four blocks north of its previous location and is now accessible from 28th Avenue in San Mateo. Featuring a center-boarding platform and pedestrian underpass, the redesigned station eliminates the need for riders to wait at a crossing gate to get from one platform to the other making your walk to board from Bay Meadows apartments a breeze!

The station also offers riders city-run on-demand electronic lockers and traditional bike racks, two parking lots (one located between 25th and 28th Avenues and the other located between 28th and 31st Avenues), four ticket vending machines, and six connecting SamTrans routes, making the station a truly multi-modal transit hub.

Whether you’re planning a trip for business or a night on the town – Caltrain makes it a breeze to hop on and go. You can take a walk over to the Hillsdale Station or even drop your car if needed in the plenty of parking. You’ll find lots of benches (some with shade), in this great location across the street from the mall. Here are a few more examples of how easy Caltrain can make your transit lifestyle:
