Buses Replace Light Rail In South San Jose Until July 1

More light rail track and overhead wire rehab work on the Blue Line has started. To allow for this work, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) shuttle buses will replace light rail trains between Capitol and Santa Teresa stations in both directions. Blue Line light rail trains will be turned around at Capitol station.

As these buses must travel via city streets, allow up to 30 minutes’ more travel time than usual.

Read on for more VTA bus alternatives for both of these events.

I have personally been away on management training on my day job. It’s why things have not been updated in the timely manner you have expected over the last few months. There are a lot of things to talk about, in regard to

  • current BART Phase II (San Jose-Santa Clara)
  • Upcoming public meetings by VTA for input on YOU for its future
  • City of San Jose public meetings for input from YOU to help make Senter Rd. safer for bicycling, walking, and public transit use

and more, will be posted here, as soon as possible. Thank you, readers, for your patience at this time.
