No VTA Light Rail in Downtown SJ This Weekend

Due to ongoing light rail rehabilitation work, VTA will run shuttle buses instead of light rail at all light rail stations in downtown San Jose this weekend.

For riders of light rail between Alum Rock and Santa Teresa: the shuttle buses will run between Civic Center and Tamien stations in both directions.

For riders of light rail between Mountain View and Winchester: shuttle buses will run between San Fernando and Civic Center stations in both directions.

At each light rail station mentioned, look for uniformed VTA staff to help you transfer between light rail trains and the shuttle buses.  This is especially of note with Silicon Valley Pride Festival activities throughout San Jose this weekend.

Follow @svtransitupdts on Twitter for the latest public transit updates and tips to help you beat traffic gridlock and parking woes.

Let’s stay safe and sane riding public transit this weekend.
