On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone a Happy Independence Day.
All Silicon Valley transit agencies (like VTA, Caltrain, SamTrans, Caltrain, and BART) are running on a Sunday/Holiday schedule today.
Fourth of July parades will cause rerouting on several VTA bus lines today. These include:
- Southbound only 181 express service in Fremont from 7am-1pm due to the local parade there.
- From 9am-2pm in the Alameda area of San Jose, the 22, 61, 62 and 522 Rapid bus lines will be rerouted to support the “Rose, White, and Blue” parade in the area.
- To support tonight’s Rotary Club fireworks in downtown San Jose, the 23, 64 and 181 express bus lines will be rerouted from 7pm-11pm in the area.
Speaking of which: VTA light rail to downtown San Jose and several bus lines are great alternatives to the traffic gridlock expected for the downtown San Jose fireworks tonight. They are also a great alternative to drinking and driving to and from the festivities.
Please stay safe and sane on this Fourth of July holiday.
