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.

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.
