Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day!

On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone a Happy Labor Day.  Today, let’s honor the working people who help make this country great.

All transit agencies in Silicon Valley such as VTA, Caltrain and SamTrans are running on a Sunday/Holiday schedule today. In addition, there are no Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) trains between Stockton and San Jose today.  Normal transit service will return on Tuesday.

Please stay safe and sane today while we all celebrate the working class people in our country today.

VTA Bus Service Changes As Of TODAY

Bus service in Santa Clara County is changing to enable more connections with Caltrain’s new schedule. To that end, VTA has made several changes to bus service in several areas to make that happen. Here are more details on these and other bus service changes effective today.

Another highlight of these changes involves the 61 or 62 bus lines. These bus service changes re-enable true 15 minute frequencies – particularly along Bascom Avenue between San Jose and Campbell.

What do YOU think about these bus service changes that VTA has made today? Will it help you leave your car and take the bus?  What would have to happen Please comment below.
