This weekend in Silicon Valley features several interesting events – despite expected rain this weekend. For starters, there’s bull riding and a Bacon Festival in San Jose. Also, there’s college football in San Jose and Raiders football in Oakland. This transit guide has Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) bus, light rail, and other rail service to and from these events to help you beat traffic gridlock.
On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July. This post details public transit service to and from all Independence Day celebration events throughout the South Bay.
Of note: there is NO BART service between Fremont and South Hayward in both directions due to track work until Tuesday. BART is running free shuttle buses between South Hayward, Union City, and Fremont in all directions. Taking BART to the East Bay from Fremont? Allow at least 30 minutes additional travel time.
Otherwise, all Silicon Valley transit agencies such as VTA, Caltrain, and SamTrans will run a Sunday/Holiday schedule on Monday. Service hours will return to normal on Tuesday.
Here are your public transit alternatives to Fourth of July events, below.
