Driving directions:
The Costco on Coleman is legally in Santa Clara, and is thus entered on the Club charger list. Most people think of it as being in San Jose since it is a couple of blocks west of the runways at San Jose Airport.

-- Karen Casner 5/23/2001 Located near the intersection of Coleman and De La Cruz west of the San Jose airport. Accessible from 101 (take De La Cruz southbound) and 880 (take Coleman northbound) Access northbound (enter or exit) from Brokaw west of Coleman.

How to find the charging station location once you have found the site:
Right against the side of the building way around to the left PAST the tire store
--Pete 12/02

1 conductive, 1 inductive charger left of and beyond Tire service. Icing is a possibility and charger can usually only be reached from one space. Since this space is fairly far from tire service, the ice'r may be hard to get moved.
