Frequently Asked Questions                                

Q: What is the postgame schedule for my light rail/bus?
A: Return service will begin after half time to get customers back to their starting point. We will have light rail trains and a line of buses ready to go but we will require that they be nearly full before starting the return trips. It seems that many customers leave events early to avoid the crowds, so it should not be a problem getting enough people on board. Also, once a light rail/bus leaves, another will be by shortly after to fill and keep people moving.

Q: I do not see my station listed will light rail stop at every station?
A: Yes, on our printed and online schedules we only list major time points for reference but trains will stop at all stations if someone is deboarding or waiting to board. You can use the listed timepoint prior to your stop for reference when planning for departure/arrival times.

Q: Will there be enough express buses for each of the times listed to accommodate everyone who shows up?
A: Yes, we will use multiple buses as needed to ensure that everyone gets a ride to and from the stadium. 

Q:  I have never used VTA before will there be any VTA staff out on the event day in case I have questions?
A: Yes, we will have ambassadors at the stadium and key light rail transit centers answering questions and helping customers reach their event.

Q: I am coming from Caltrain, where can I connect with VTA to get to Levi’s?
A: VTA connects with Caltrain at the Mtn. View, Sunnyvale and Santa Clara Stations.  Please go to www.caltrain.com/events for more information.
