Downtown light rail closure this weekend

This weekend, light rail service will be suspended in downtown San Jose from Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. to facilitate the replacement of old rails at 1st and Devine streets. Construction is expected to end before the start of the Monday morning commute.

During that time, light rail service from Mountain View and Alum Rock will end at Japantown/Ayer Station. Service from Santa Teresa and Winchester will end at Convention Center Station. A free bus bridge will connect with light rail at Civic Center and Convention Center stations, stopping at all stations in between.

Although light rail passengers from the north can stay onboard until Japantown/Ayer, VTA advises anyone requiring a transfer to get off at Civic Center.
