Express light rail service in Silicon Valley won’t be the only era ending October 8. That morning, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA)’s 180 and 181 express bus service will shift to the new Warm Springs BART station from Fremont BART station. These are all part of VTA’s service changes to the transit system, effective Monday, October 8.
One other result to these changes: VTA buses will no longer serve bus stops in Fremont. This means passengers will likely have to take AC Transit’s 217 bus to Warm Springs BART, then transfer to VTA’s 180/181 express buses.
What are your thoughts to these changes? Please comment below.
Founder, Silicon Valley Transit Users
On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to wish everyone here a Happy Independence Day.
A reminder: ALL transit agencies serving Silicon Valley are running on a Sunday/Holiday schedule today. This includes Caltrain, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), SamTrans, Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) trains, and the Dumbarton Express bus service. Normal weekday service and schedules will return tomorrow.
Here’s a quick guide to public transit options for some Independence Day events throughout the Bay Area today. Much of this will help you avoid drunk driving, parking hassles, and traffic gridlock to and from the festivities.

Bus and light rail restructuring throughout Santa Clara County has been put off until 2018. The Silicon Valley Transit Users just received official word from VTA that the BART extension to Milpitas and Berryessa in San Jose has been moved until June 2018 due to “system integration and testing.”
The VTA Board of Directors received word of the BART extension delay from staff at the August 3 Board of Directors’ meeting in San Jose. This means that the VTA “Next Network” transit restructuring has been moved until at least 2018.
