Tamien station partial closure and bus bridge
The retrofit to the southbound side of the platform is complete. The northbound side is now closed for construction. New signs have been placed to notify riders about the temporary loss of northbound service.
Friday's derailment prompted VTA to stop single tracking in the area. A bus bridge has been set up between Curtner and Convention Center to provide northbound access at Tamien. Earlier today, there were supervisors at Tamien to make sure buses come on time.
The bus bridge goes from Tamien directly to Convention Center via the freeway. There's no bus bridge service for Virginia and Children's Discovery Museum stations even though they're completely closed for construction.
