Bicycle and Pedestrian Access

Bicycle and Pedestrian Access to and from the Airport:

Pedestrian and Bicycle access is available via Airport Parkway and the marked crosswalks across Airport Boulevard. In the interest of safety, there is no direct pedestrian or bicycle access via Skyport Drive.

As an alternative, we encourage pedestrians and bicyclists to use the VTA Airport Flyer (#10) that provides free service between Light Rail, the Airport, and the Santa Clara Cal Train Station. The VTA Airport Flyer operates approximately every 15-30 minutes 5am-11:30pm. The VTA Flyer also provides racks to accommodate bicycles.

The Flyer currently has pick-up/drop-off locations at the following bus stops (see map for route and stops):

  • First Street at Metro Drive across from the Light Rail Station
  • Technology Drive at Metro Drive
  • Airport Parkway and Technology Drive
  • Terminals A and B at the Airport (Ground Transportation Islands)
  • Cal Train Station in Santa Clara

Bicyclists are required to stay on official roadways and bicycle trails. Both bicyclists and pedestrians should observe all traffic regulations and signs and exercise extreme caution at all times. Drivers on Airport roads are focused on locating their flights and terminals and might not be aware of the presence of bicyclists and pedestrians.

Bicycle Racks:

At Terminal A, bike racks are located on the left-hand side of the vehicle entry area to the Terminal A Parking Garage (now called Hourly Lot 2) and in the area next to the exit doors at the south end of Terminal A baggage claim.

At Terminal B, bike racks are located on the left-hand side of the vehicle entry area of the Rental Car Center/Terminal B Public Parking Garage (now called Hourly Lot 3).
