VTA issues reminder that it remains open

Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) has spread word to make clear that it remains open and on schedule despite the countywide “shelter in place” provisions instituted until April 7, 2020.

Essential government services exempt from the shelter in place requirements include public transit, of which VTA is a part.

This means that VTA’s bus, light rail, and paratransit services shall continue to remain in effect. They must, however, in accordance with the temporary restrictions, be used for the sake of essential travel, which means travel by workers in essential industries (including healthcare, childcare, and food services) or by those in need of such services. In other words, people can take VTA to the hospital, to their doctor or pharmacy, or to the food store or restaurants providing takeout. 

The standing VTA schedule has not changed.
