On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day this weekend.
On Monday, all transit agencies serving Santa Clara County will run on a Sunday/Holiday schedule. This includes Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) buses/light rail, Caltrain, SamTrans, and BART. Normal weekday service for all transit agencies will resume on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, this long weekend, VTA buses and light rail will help you beat traffic and parking woes to the following events:
- FanimeCon (San Jose) May 27-30 at San Jose McEnery Convention Center – VTA light rail Blue and Green Lines, 23 and 523 Rapid stop at the Convention Center itself. Read our transit guide to the Convention Center for more details.
- Mushroom Mardi Gras (Morgan Hill) May 28-29 – VTA’s 68 bus line takes you to downtown Morgan Hill for the festivities.
- San Jose Giants Baseball (San Jose) May 30 – the reigning, defending Low-A West Champion San Jose Giants host Stockton at 1pm at Excite Ballpark (San Jose Municipal Stadium) on Alma and Senter. Our transit guide shows you how VTA’s 73 bus line takes you right to the stadium.
On this long weekend, let’s ensure we honor and salute those who have fallen while serving our country in our Armed Forces.
Lastly, make sure to follow @svtransitupdts on Twitter for the latest public transit service updates and information.
Stay safe out there, in these wild times.
