Light Rail Rehabilitation Coming Spring Through Summer

Starting this spring, VTA will be repairing or replacing worn elements of the light rail overhead catenary system (OCS) and performing other necessary work to keep VTA’s light rail system in a state of good repair. As a result, segments of the light rail lines will be closed for construction periodically from late April through late summer which may result in transit impacts to your daily commute or visits to popular events and attractions this summer. 

Light rail service in areas impacted by this construction will be replaced by bus service or a “bus bridge” to ensure passengers can still travel to their destinations. Riders are highly encouraged to plan their trip in advance.

Below is a tentative schedule* of upcoming transit impacts. Details are subject to change.
