(CUPERTINO, Calif.) — NEWS: Due to the tragic shooting today at the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority rail yard in San Jose, Sponsor a Ride is underwriting local Uber and Lyft trips for all essential workers, medical personnel, and first responders who cannot get to their jobs due to the VTA shutdown, according to Logistics coordinator Mirna Saraswati.
As the rail yard is still an active crime scene, light rail service will be disrupted until the end of today, and perhaps tomorrow.
Check local news for updates. We will continue subsidizing trips until noon Thursday or until VTA service is back to normal.
Go to https://www.sponsoraride.net/ and follow instructions to be reimbursed for rides. Please, only essential travel qualifies, not shopping or pleasure trips.
