Palo Alto Shuttle (Discontinued)

Palo Alto shuttle

Effective July 1, 2020, both the Embarcadero and Crosstown shuttle are out of service. This is due to the pandemic and the shelter-in-place order that curtailed ridership and reduced city resources. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Alternative Services:

VTA Bus Route 21:

This route connects the Palo Alto Transit Center/Caltrain to Mountain View and Santa Clara via Middlefield in Palo Alto. Some Crosstown Shuttle users may be able to use this instead.
