No VTA Light Rail in Downtown SJ This Weekend

Due to ongoing light rail rehabilitation work, VTA will run shuttle buses instead of light rail at all light rail stations in downtown San Jose this weekend.

For riders of light rail between Alum Rock and Santa Teresa: the shuttle buses will run between Civic Center and Tamien stations in both directions.

For riders of light rail between Mountain View and Winchester: shuttle buses will run between San Fernando and Civic Center stations in both directions.

At each light rail station mentioned, look for uniformed VTA staff to help you transfer between light rail trains and the shuttle buses.  This is especially of note with Silicon Valley Pride Festival activities throughout San Jose this weekend.

Let’s stay safe and sane riding public transit this weekend.

Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th Of July!

On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day.

As a reminder, all Silicon Valley transit agencies like Caltrain and the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) are running on a Sunday/Holiday schedule today.  Normal service will return tomorrow.

Meanwhile, VTA has put together a schedule matrix of bus services that will be detoured today, due to various Independence day activities.  The matrix also includes information on enhanced light rail service to fireworks shows in downtown San Jose, Great America, and Lake Almaden this evening.

Please stay safe and sane today and tonight.
