Final in a Series: From “Commuter Railroads” to “Regional Railroads”
A Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) train operator-in-training has tested positive for COVID-19 in California, and as a precautionary measure light rail service is being put on pause.
VTA employees received an email by General Manager and CEO Nuria Fernandez revealing the transit agency received news of the positive test late on March 25. Six trains were still running at the time, and they were all shut down immediately. Fernandez wants all train operators to stay at home until further notice.
With the light rail service put on hold VTA is now focusing on bus service. VTA will continue to follow its coronavirus sanitation schedule.
Ridership has dropped 82 percent on VTA trains since Santa Clara, Calif., laid down a shelter-in-place order to residents last week.
