Because there’s so little separation between the pedestrian and transit environments in downtown San Jose, trains have to go slowly to avoid collisions. As a result, trains traveling through downtown have some of the slowest travel speeds of any light rail system in the country. But the VTA is preparing to launch a new pilot program to help improve the speed and safety of these routes. Come learn more about this ambitious project.
