Light Rail Still Suspended, Substitute Bus Service to be Discontinued

The May 26 tragedy at the Guadalupe Light Rail Yard continues to affect VTA transit service.  As the VTA Family grieves, attends funerals, and supports each other, we have less staff available to operate reliable transit service and therefore VTA will operate as follows, starting Tuesday, June 1:

Light rail service continues to be suspended indefinitely. At this time, there is no estimate of when this service will resume.  

In addition, because of limited staffing, we can no longer offer substitute bus service along light rail routes.

Instead, VTA is directing all resources to the regular bus network that serves the majority of our riders who rely on public transit the most.

Limited operator availability means that service will be less frequent even for bus service.  We apologize for the inconvenience, and ask for your patience and understanding while we work to navigate this unprecedented circumstance.  

Riders can contact VTA’s Customer Service at (408) 321-2300 during regular business hours for service information and/or use TransitApp for real-time bus information.
