Celebrate Fourth of July Safely Around VTA


It’s that time of the summer to celebrate Independence Day – fireworks, barbecues, and family and friends gathering to have fun. But don’t forget to keep safety in mind, especially around VTA’s bus and light rail systems. For a quick reminder, watch our short, new safety video.

If you’re planning to ride VTA to the fireworks wherever you are in Santa Clara County, download the VTAlerts app. The app allows you to call 911 in an emergency, or instantly report safety concerns on our system to VTA transit security.

To make getting to and from your Fourth of July destination more convenient, download and purchase fare on VTA’s EZfare mobile fare app.

VTA will operate on a Sunday/holiday service schedule in order to provide extra service for the Downtown San Jose Rotary Fireworks show.  If you’re headed to one of the many other fireworks shows  in Santa Clara County, be sure to check out VTA service impacts.

Please visit for more information, and feel free to share our video with friends, family, and neighbors.
