SAN JOSE, Calif. – This spring, the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) will begin repairs to the overhead catenary system (OCS) on its light rail.

Throughout April until late summer, segments of light rail will be closed for construction at times. Crews will also perform other work as part of the agency’s Rail Rehabilitation and Replacement Program, State of Good Repair. Riders are encouraged to visit VTA’s website for the tentative schedule of upcoming transit impacts.
