Oh, the Places You’ll Go! | VTA’s Bus 22
Just across the street from Santa Clara University, where buses and trains at the Santa Clara Transit Center cycle in and out throughout the day, the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA)’s Bus 22 and Rapid Bus 522 provide limited-stop service along El Camino Real and Santa Clara Street. Bus 22 leaves every 12 minutes during peak hours and mid-day, and every 20-30 minutes during evening hours, seven days a week.

Headed to downtown San Jose? Hop on Bus 22 any day of the week and get off at the Santa Clara and 1st stop to check out San Pedro Square or walk a few blocks to San Fernando Street, then west towards Market Street. Around Market Street, you can check out the San Jose Museum of Art, the latest exhibition at the San Jose Tech Museum, or a movie at Camera 12 Downtown. Watching a Sharks game at HP Pavilion or have tickets to the latest concert? Get off at Santa Clara and Cahill.

More information about latest events at HP Pavillion.

  • Camera 12 Downtown
    Show your Access card and watch a movie any day of the week for $7.50. On Wednesday nights, watch a movie for $6 for shows starting after 6:00 pm for Camera 12’s Student Night.
  • First Fridays
    The first Friday of most months, head downtown for South FIRST FRIDAYS, a self-guided evening tour through the galleries, museums, and creative businesses in the South First Street area. The next First Friday art walk will be on Friday, May 3rd.

How to Pay
If you are paying with cash, place the exact fare in the fare box, as the bus operators do not carry change. A single ride on VTA costs $2.00, while a day pass costs $6.00. If you are planning to take many trips, invest in a monthly or annual pass to save some money. Get a Clipper® Card at any ticket vending station or online! Clipper® Cards work on all major Bay Area transit services, including Muni, BART, Caltrain, SamTrans, and VTA.
