Line 323 Gets Major Expansion of Service as Part of VTA's Quarterly Service Changes12/30/2014 10:48 AM |
Come Monday, January 5, riders of Limited Stop Line 323 will have more opportunities to get where they need to go as VTA adds hours to weekday and Saturday service and adds all new Sunday service to the line running from De Anza College to downtown San Jose.
Here are the changes to Line 323:
On weekdays, we'll operate evening service every 30 minutes until 10:30 p.m.
On Saturdays, service will begin earlier, at 8 a.m., and will operate every 30 minutes until 9 a.m. We'll add new Saturday evening service operating every 30 minutes until 10 p.m.
On Sundays, service will operate every 20 minutes from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There will also be a few other weekday and Saturday schedule changes. Check them out here.
We are also adding new stops at 1st and Julian in the eastbound direction and 2nd and Bassett in the westbound direction.
Two Other Major Service Changes
Every quarter, VTA examines its service and makes changes where necessary. Sometimes these changes are planned far in advance, and sometimes they are based on user feedback.
One of the other major changes we're making is ending the Community Bus Line 17 (Gilroy Transit Center - Monterey & Las Animas) route at the Social Services office on Tomkins Ct. and no longer serving the Monterey and Las Animas stop. This change is being made for safety reasons, and the new schedule can be seen here.
We also will be rerouting Line 77 (Eastridge - Great Mall) around construction of VTA’s BART Silicon Valley Extension on Lundy Ave. near Sierra Road. This intersection will be closed beginning January 26 for 9 months, and the reroute of Bus Line 77 will operate on Lundy, Hostetter, Flickinger and Berryessa back to Lundy. Temporary bus stops will be set up along Flickinger Avenue, and minor weekday and weekend schedule changes will be made. We encourage our passengers to plan their trips accordingly, and you can see the rerouted schedule here.
Other notable changes include adding a bus to Line 25 on Sundays to improve layovers, as with Line 55 on Saturdays. Line 27 will have some major schedule changes to coordinate with Leigh High School bell times. VTA will also add a morning northbound bus to Express Line 168 on Mondays and Wednesdays when San Jose State University is in session. Rapid Line 522 will also have major schedule changes.
VTA will make minor changes to the following Express bus lines: 102, 104, 120, 121, and 122.
We'll make minor weekday changes to the following bus lines: 22, 23, 26, 35, 47, 54, 55, 70, 72 and 73.
We'll make minor weekend changes to these lines: 35, 47, 54, 55, 70, 72 and 73.
