 ntsp changes

VTA’s will go into effect on December 28, 2019. Changes include some areas that may lose service coverage, have altered service coverage, or have the same coverage under a different route number. The following routes to campus will be affected: 63, 64, 65, 66, 73, 81, 82, 201 DASH, and 323

For individuals who take an Express Route to campus:

Express Bus 181- Due to the delay of BART, the Express bus 181 will continue to operate until BART service opens in the future stopping at the I-880/Milpitas light rail station. 

Express Bus 168- This route will continue to run as an Express Route until 2021, potential changes to Express bus 168 will be part of VTA’s robust community engagement next year. 

We have put together a summary of the SJSU routes that will be affected. If you have any concerns about these changes might impact you or if you need assistance finding an alternative route to campus please email
