Alternative transportation for Sharks fans

Submitted By Brandi Childress

Back by popular demand for the 2013-2014 Sharks hockey season, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is providing a more convenient, affordable transit alternative to the traffic-riddled, driving and parking experience!Ê

At the suggestion of Sharks fans last hockey season, VTA will once again run a special game-day train leaving Santa Teresa with direct service to the San Jose Diridon Station, eliminating the need to transfer between trains at the Convention Center Station located two stops from Diridon.Ê An additional return train to south San Jose leaves no earlier than 15 minutes after the end of the game.Ê This train is different than the one departing for the Winchester Station in Campbell so check the head signs before boarding to make sure you are headed in the right direction!

This new transit option starts Friday, September 20th.Ê The direct service, offered at all Sharks home games will vary depending on game start times so please check the special train schedule departure times at http://www.vta.org/sharks/.

For more information on VTA Bus and Light Rail services, please contact VTA Customer Service at (408) 321-2300, TTY (408) 321-2330. You can also log onto www.vta.org and sign-up to receive VTA email updates.Ê Follow us on Twitter: @VTA and ÒLikeÓ us on facebook.com/scvta!
