VTA Bus Service Changes On Monday


On Monday, April 14, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) will make several changes to bus and light rail service throughout Santa Clara County.

Details on the changes are after the jump.

Chief amongst those changes, as member Dwayne Williams pointed out on our email list:

  • Line 81 (Vallco-San Jose State University)- The routing in the Vallco area will be changed due to the permanent closure of Pruneridge Ave. between Wolfe and Homestead (see map below). Buses will terminate at an improved stop at Wolfe & Stevens Creek. Minor weekday and Saturday schedule changes will be made.
  • Express Line 181 (Downtown San Jose- Fremont BART)– Additional service will be added on weekends due to high ridership. On Saturday, new northbound trips will be added leaving San Jose Diridon at 8:58 a.m. and 6:35 p.m., and a new southbound trip will leave Fremont BART at 8:44 a.m. On Sunday, additional trips will be added in both directions between 7:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., and also between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

One potential idea for extra bus service on the 181 express bus line between Fremont BART and San Jose Diridion Station: additional support for evening events at SAP Center. This was brought up to us thru Twitter recently:
