Proposed 2019 New Transit Service Plan | Light Rail Routes

 

As part of the frequent network, light rail routes would operate at 15-minute frequency on weekdays and 20-minute frequencies on weekends (to match 20-minute BART frequencies), except in the early morning and late evening when service would be less frequent.

Two station names would be changed. I-880/Milpitas Station would be renamed to Alder Station. Montague Station would be renamed to Milpitas Station as it is adjacent to the Milpitas BART Station.

Changes are presented in comparison to current service.

 

 

Blue Line

The Alum Rock-Santa Teresa light rail line is proposed to be renamed to the Blue Line. The Blue Line would be shortened to end at Baypointe Station instead of the Alum Rock Transit Center. Current riders east of Baypointe Station would be served by the new Orange Line.
