Take a Daycation on VTA

The “Daycation” program is designed to provide travel training to small groups so that they become comfortable enough with VTA bus and Light Rail service to start using it for their travel needs.

Program Overview

The program has two main components:

  1. A training session in which we teach participants how to use VTA service
  2. An escorted trip in which we use the bus and or light rail to and from a local destination such as a museum, mall or restaurant.
