100 Days and Counting: VTA Presents Robust Service Plan for Levi’s Stadium4/24/2014 10:16 AM |
San Jose, Calif. – With 100 days left before the first event at Levi’s Stadium and the San Francisco 49ers 2014 schedule just released, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) presented its plan for service to the Stadium, and it’s all about the numbers. VTA will have:
- 5 new bus routes on game day
- 78 extra buses
- 80 rail cars in service
- 10,000-plus riders
The plan includes information on where extra trains and buses will be stationed for pre- and post-event service, how often the trains and buses will be deployed and their routes.
It’s not just VTA buses and trains that require coordination. With 12,500 to 16,600 fans expected to take all forms of public transit to the games, VTA is working closely with our transit partners Caltrain, Altamont Commuter Express, Capitol Corridor, BART and Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transportation.
VTA staff will monitor the plan closely and will learn more about appropriate service levels after each event. The plan will be under continue evaluation and adaptation to ensure it meets the needs of stadium-goers. An overview of the plan is embedded below.
