Posted on October 7, 2010

[IMAGE]Santa-Clara-Valley-Commuter-Express-Light-Rail-OpeningFULL-2.jpg[/IMAGE] On Monday, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) made significant improvements to light rail service since its inception nearly 23 years ago. VTA will operate a new non-stop, faster express light rail service now featuring free Wi-Fi.


With the debut of the VTA Commuter Express, customers will enjoy faster and more frequent light rail service with six newly added, peak-hour commute trips from south San Jose, through downtown, to North San Jose.


Customers riding the new Commuter Express light rail will be able to access Wi-Fi free of charge, while on board these trains. Trains with Wi-Fi capability are marked with a “Wi-Fi On Board” sticker. Customers on the VTA Commuter Express will enjoy the added convenience, reduced travel times, and W-iFi for the same fare that VTA charges for existing light rail service.
