Here’s Dr. King’s famous speech from the March On Washington For Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963.
Some of our goals in 2021 – including an action item for an upcoming VTA Workshop this Friday morning – will be in our next two posts. This and other information on the site will be updated throughout the week to reflect local transit leadership in 2021.
Overall, we still have work to do to help achieve Dr. King’s dream. Let’s get to it.

Even in a global pandemic, one New Year’s Eve public transit tradition continues. Transit agencies like Caltrain, SamTrans, and VTA will have free fares for their bus & rail service starting around 8pm. This despite Santa Clara County’s “shelter in place” health orders in effect until further notice.
Pandemic protection rules such as social distancing and mask wearing on board will still apply. Per health department directives, avoid crowds to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
Read on for a summary of who’s offering what services on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and when.
Please make sure to take advantage of these FREE transit services on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day – especially if you have been drinking. To help you use public transit on New Year’s Eve – and any other time – read our new First Time Transit User guide.
Have a safe and sane New Year!
