Last Chance To Speak Up This Month

Your input is still needed to craft a possible ballot measure in 2016. Today at 2:30pm in Gilroy, TransForm (a group we work with) is hosting the first of several forums designed to gather input on what YOU would like to see in a possible transportation ballot measure in 2016.

The last of these meetings takes place this evening from 6pm to 8:30pm at the Mexican Heritage Plaza at 1700 Alum Rock Ave. in San Jose. VTA’s 22, 23, 77 and 522 Rapid bus lines serve the Mexican Heritage Plaza. RSVP for this last meeting this evening.

Quarterly Bus Service Changes Today

Today marks the start of many Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) bus service changes. Find out how YOU are affected in Santa Clara County as of today.

Attend Silicon Valley University? VTA will have an extra 180 northbound bus at 9:05pm from Lundy and Fortune in San Jose. This extra bus will go directly to Fremont BART station, and runs Monday-Friday when school is in session.

What do YOU think about this set of VTA’s quarterly bus service changes? Please comment below.

Happy 4th Of July!



On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone a Happy Safe (and Sane!) Fourth of July.

For July 4, VTA will run extra light rail trains into downtown San Jose to support the fireworks show in the downtown area. VTA will also have increased light rail service to support the fireworks show at Great America Park in Santa Clara, which is set to start around 10pm.

Also, Caltrain will run extra trains from San Francisco after 11pm to support the fireworks show along the city’s piers and docks.

The San Jose Giants are in town hosting Visalia this weekend. Fireworks shows occur after both games, which start at 6:30pm. Our guide lists VTA bus service to and from Municipal Stadium which help you beat the expected traffic gridlock before and after the game and fireworks.

Stay safe and sane today and this weekend!
