Measure B includes a $32.8-million Union City Intermodal Station, which will connect bus lines, BART, Amtrak and possibly the Altamont Commuter Express and a Dumbarton Corridor rail link to Caltrain in San Mateo County. Redevelopment funds extends this to envision a new compact, pedestrian and transit oriented development of housing, office, and retail on land adjacent to the BART Station. New transit connections will be created to the south bay, peninsula, and central valley. The Station District will provide at least 500 housing units and one million square feet of office.
While this is not in Niles, it can greatly affect us. For example, it may change traffic patterns or change the desirability of living in Niles.
