The Way to San José: Rotary Celebrates the Valley’s Transportation History
The Way to San José, on display in historic Diridon Station, celebrates nearly 100 years of Rotary in San José with a focus on transportation in Santa Clara Valley — from Native Americans travelling by foot and canoe, to the new expansion of the San José International Airport, and beyond to the BART extension and California’s future high speed rail systems.
The brainchild of immediate past Rotary president Rod Diridon, Sr., the exhibit was funded by the Rotary Club of San José, curated and installed by History San José, and supported by the California Trolley and Railroad Corporation and the Mineta Transportation Institute.
