New wayfinding signage has recently been posted at the Menlo Park Caltrain Station on the north side of the historic stationhouse. This full detailed, colored map replaces the one that has dutifully served the station over the last few years. This map will help commuters and first-timer visitors to the City navigate the station and local area. This will facilitate transit and shuttle connections along with showing nearby attractions such as downtown and the Civic Center.
For those keen-eyed observers, this familiar looking-signage is a part of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s (MTC) regional wayfinding signage program. Signs similar to this one exist at large transit centers, such as in Palo Alto, Mountain View, San Jose and San Francisco. Other variants of signage include walking maps in downtown San Francisco and signs to exit BART stations.
The City of Menlo Park is currently working with Caltrain to install more signs like this at the Menlo Park Caltrain station to ease navigability of transit connections. This sign is a part of the City’s commitment to improve wayfinding in Menlo Park, and facilitating alternative modes of transportation in general.
