Service Features

Bus Signal Priority – As a bus approaches many intersections, sensors on the bus communicate with traffic signals to allow buses to move through as quickly as possible.

Next Stop, Your Stop – Rapid 522 makes only 30 stops between Palo Alto and San Jose  (that’s almost 75% fewer than VTA’s Local Line 22 service), getting you to your stop in less time!

Service All Day Long – Rapid 522 runs until 11:00 p.m. on Monday - Saturday; and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

Fast, frequent, and more direct – Rapid 522 looks and performs different than anything else on the road! You’ll know it as soon as you see it.
