Proposed 2019 New Transit Service Plan | Frequent Bus Routes

 

Frequent routes operate at 15-minute or better frequencies on weekdays from at least 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM.

Changes are presented in comparison to current service.

DASH Shuttle

The DASH Shuttle, which provides circulator service between Downtown San Jose and Diridon Station, would be upgraded to the Rapid 500, which would add a connection to the Berryessa BART Station and be more frequent than the DASH Shuttle.

Current Diridon Station - Santa Clara Street & 4th
Proposed Upgrade to Rapid 500

 
 

Rapid 500

The Rapid 500 Route would connect Diridon Station, Downtown San Jose and the Berryessa BART Station and operate at about 7-8 minute frequency on weekdays. Rapid 500 would replace the DASH shuttle.

Route 23

Route 23 would be rerouted to remain on Stevens Creek between between Winchester and Bascom instead of deviating onto Forest to serve the Valley Fair Transit Center. A new route, Route 59, would operate on Forest and may be an option for current riders on Forest. Weekday frequency would be decreased from 12 minutes to 15 minutes.

Route 26

Route 26, which currently connects the Lockheed Martin Transit Center with the Westgate area and Eastridge Transit Center would be broken into two routes: Route 26 and Route 56.

Route 26 would connect West Valley College with the Westgate area and Eastridge Transit Center. Weekday frequency on Route 26 would be improved from 30 minutes to 15 minutes and weekend frequency would improve from 30 minutes to 20 minutes. The portion of the route between West Valley College and the Westgate area would operate at a lower frequency.

Route 56 would connect the Lockheed Martin Transit Center, Westgate area and Tamien Station.

Routes 61 and 62 would be merged into Route 61 that would operate frequent 15-minute service in the common segment between Bascom & Union and the Berryessa BART Station.

Route 64

Route 64 would be merged with Route 63 to create Route 64a and Route 64b. Routes 64a and 64b would serve a common segment between Mckee and White and Diridon Station at a 15-minute frequency. Route 64a would travel along Bird, Lincoln, Almaden Expressway, Coleman and Winfield and would serve the Almaden, Oakridge and Ohlone/Chynoweth stations. Route 64b would replace current Route 63, traveling along Meridian and Camden. Route 64a and 64b would travel through Downtown San Jose along Santa Clara Street, 6th/7th and Julian rather than Santa Clara Street, 13th and Julian as Route 64 does today. The portion of the route east of Diridon Station would operate at 15-minute frequency and the portions south of Diridon Station would operate at 30-minute frequency.

Route 66

Proposed routing change to serve Milpitas BART Station instead of Great Mall Transit Center. Frequency would be upgraded to 15-minutes on weekdays.

The Draft Plan proposed that the portion of the route south of the Milpitas BART Station operate at 15-minute frequency and the portion north of the Milpitas BART Station operate at 30-minute frequency. The Final Plan proposes that the entire route operate at 15-minute frequency.

School-oriented service to Santa Teresa High School that is currently listed as part of Route 66 would be discontinued. Santa Teresa High School students would need to take Route 68 to Route 66 to complete these trips in this proposal.
