Light Rail Service is Back!
light rail schedule for service thru Sept 3, 2021

Light Rail is back on track.  Okay…it’s only part of the system, but we are working hard to get the whole system back on track. And through September 12, it’s free!

First and foremost, please be careful around the tracks.  Assume the entire system is "live", meaning overhead lines are electrified everywhere you see them.  Obey all railroad crossing gates, signals and warnings.  

In the meantime, the Orange Line, from Mountain View to Alum Rock, is fully operational, which includes serving the Milpitas Transit Center and the BART connection. Hours of operation for now are 5:30 a.m. to midnight, with trains running every 20 minutes until 8 p.m., at which time trains will go to every 30 minutes.

Part of the Green Line is also on track, from Civic Center to Old Ironsides with 20 minute service from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., and 30 minute service from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The Bus Bridge along first street from Paseo de San Antonio to the Milpitas Transit Center will continue to operate every 30 minutes from 5:30 am to 8:30 p.m., with free fare until light rail is fully operational.

Service on the remaining segments of the Green and Blue lines will come back in phases. As we continue to bring back employees safely and compassionately, we will update the public on the level of light rail service we can safely continue to provide.

Thanks for hanging in there with us.  We’re so glad to see you back on board!
