Transport in San Jose
San Jose is a large city and will require several modes of transport to get around. Walking is feasible if you’re keeping to the downtown area. If you want to explore some of the outer reaches of the city, you’ll need to make other plans. The best way to get around quickly is to use the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA). With nearly 90 different lines servicing San Jose and many surrounding areas, the VTA is an excellent way to travel quickly. It may be worth grabbing a day pass through Clipper or EZFare.
