Passenger train service returning to downtown after 94 years: MantecaBulletin.com
The return of passenger train service to downtown Manteca in 2026 after a 94-year hiatus will be at a station that’s a first-class affair compared to the original station in place back in 1870.

That’s because Altamont Corridor Express commuter service to San Jose and Sacramento will stop at a passenger platform near the $7 million brick and glass transit center that opened in 2013 at Moffat Boulevard and Main Street.

City leaders back in 2010 when finalizing the design opted to go with the traditional brick look to complement downtown. They rejected a modern design alternative heavy on glass and steel with bold lines.
