Definitely concur, the frontage road Jameco is on is pedestrian-unfriendly.
For crossing 101, there is a nice new ped (and walk-your-bike) bridge
just north of Ralston -- but it adds 0.4 miles to the Caltrain-Jameco route.
Further down the peninsula but closer to Caltrain, HSC Electronics is a
light-industrial but ped-friendly 0.5 mile walk from the Lawrence
station. HSC is a little different from Jameco, but still a fun stop
and a good supplier, depending on what you need.
