VTA Replacement Bus Service

August 3, 2021

    Due to the ongoing light rail shutdown, VTA will once again operate a temporary replacement bus service along part of the light rail system starting August 2.  


    The bus service will operate along First Street in San Jose, from the Paseo de San Antonio Station to Baypointe Station, then over to the Milpitas Transit Center along Tasman Drive, and will serve all the light rail stations along the way.


    This service will operate every 30 minutes on weekdays from 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and hourly on weekends from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  

    How much?

    No fares will be charged for this temporary bus service, which will continue until light rail has been restored.
    *At this time, there is no firm estimate of when light rail service will begin. 

    Also, on August 2, the weekday schedule for Route 500 has been revised to match the improved BART schedule, with evening service running until 2 a.m.

    The Saturday schedule will be improved to operate every 10-20 minutes, and service hours will be expanded to cover 5:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. The Sunday schedule will also be revised.
