The use of public transportation has gone down increasingly since COVID-19 made its way to the Bay Area.

Since we were told to shelter in place, and many are now working from home BART has decided to change its week day schedule.

Starting March 23rd BART will be running from 5am – 9pm, and weekend service will now be from 8am – 9pm.

Another change that’s happening to public transportation on March 23rd, is that VTA is no longer collecting fare from passengers on buses, lightrails, and paratransit services.

VTA is also suspending service between Rapid 500 from Diridon Station to Berryessa Ctr, they have provided alternative routes which you can read about below!
