ACE Commuter Train closer to reality for Elk Grove residents after land purchase

The proposed ACE Commuter Train line took a big step forward with the purchase of the land needed to build a station in Elk Grove. The proposed location will be along the Union Pacific Railroad line, west of Franklin Blvd and north of Laguna Blvd.

The final design for the station is expected to be finalized late in 2024 and construction could be completed by the end of 2026.

Station Land Acquired for ACE Train Commuter Rail Service in Elk Grove 

Late last month the San Joaquin Regional Rail Commission (SJRRC) closed escrow on land for a station in Elk Grove, California, clearing a significant hurdle in the multi-year effort to bring the popular commuter rail service, Altamont Corridor Express (ACE), to the city. ACE, already linking thousands of commuters and visitors between the Central and Silicon Valleys daily, is set to make Elk Grove a stop on its expanded service between downtown San Jose and Sacramento.

Echoing this sentiment Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen said, “A new train station in Elk Grove is not just a transportation hub, but a gateway for connecting with our untapped potential. The station will close the gap between Elk Grove and the Bay Area, remove barriers like a lengthy commute for top talent, and provide further incentive for businesses to start in, or relocate to, Elk Grove.” With escrow closing on the Elk Grove station property, final design set to be completed by the end of 2024, and construction expected to conclude by the end of 2026, the project is well underway, heralding a promising new chapter for Elk Grove and standing as a testament to the city’s unwavering commitment to progress and prosperity.
