Evacuation instruction

As a result of last year's light rail derailment, VTA finally put meaningful information on emergency evacuation on its light rail (as supposed to the car card earlier). This information is similar to those at Muni and BART. Like BART, VTA put drawings on how to get out of trains on elevated structures or in tunnels, even though VTA only has over a mile long elevated structure in Milpitas and a 1/4 mile subway under San Jose Diridon station.

Don't forget about the elevated sections on the vasona line.

Thanks for reminding me. There's that little section over Hamilton Ave and highway 17.

That stretch by Moffet Field and 101 is practically a subway when it comes to evacuations.
