SJ Light Rail

There is a lot happening with this light rail system. There are now 3 separate lines  on the this system in the South Bay.

The Blue, or Alum Rock/Santa Teresa Line runs the entire length of the original Guadalupe Corridor, and the new Capitol Corridor.

The green or Mountain View/Winchester line contains the extended Tasman Corridor to Mt View. Runs on the Guadalupe section to just south of downtown SJ. There it branches onto the brand new Vasona Corridor to Winchester.

The orange, or Almaden line is a short shuttle line connecting the Blue line to a major mall.
