Transportation access is one of Watsonville’s biggest advantages!
Watsonville’s central location at the juncture of Highways 1, 129 and 152 allows easy access for ground transportation and deliveries.
In addition to having its own general aviation airport, Watsonville is conveniently located within an hour of Mineta San Jose International Airport and within two hours of San Francisco International Airport. Other local general aviation airports include Monterey (27 miles) and Marina (20 miles).
Union Pacific rails run through the west side industrial area. At this time, the closest Caltrain station is in Gilroy, 20 miles west on Highway 152. However, within the next few years, Caltrain has plans to bring a station to Pajaro, just over the bridge from Watsonville. Caltrain will provide easy commuter access to the Bay Area. Construction will commence in 2009 and operation of the line will begin in 2011.
A bus transit center is located near downtown Watsonville. The transit center offers residents access to Greyhound, Santa Cruz Metro and Monterey-Salinas Transit bus lines.
