This week on Transit Accessible Attractions we will be talking about the Great Mall.
The Great Mall is the largest indoor outlet mall in Northern California. It features 200 outlet stores, including Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Coach Factory Store, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, H&M, Forever 21, Abercrombie & Fitch Outlet, Gap and Michael Kors. There are many dining options as well, like Dave and Busters and Jollibee. It serves the local communities of Milpitas, Fremont and San Jose.
Great Mall is increbibly accessible by transit, with Great Mall/Main station right near the Mall. The Great Mall/Main station is served by VTA bus routes 46, 47, 66, 70, 71, 77, 104, 180, 181, 321 and AC Transit bus route 217.
From Fremont BART, take VTA Express route 180 or 181 to Great Mall/Main, or AC Transit route 217 to the Great Mall. The VTA express buses are more expensive, but are faster than AC Transit's 217.
VTA Light Rail is a great option if you're riding from the South Bay, with great connections to CalTrain - Just take the Santa Teresa to Alum Rock route (901) to Great Mall/Main.
Stay tuned next week to find out which attraction we'll feature next!
