Public can comment on VTA’s new transit service plan

The Valley Transportation Authority’s Board of Directors has developed a draft of the agency’s 2019 New Transit Plan, and the public is encouraged to comment on it.

The 2019 New Transit Plan is a revision of a previously adopted plan and follows the board’s recent direction regarding buses and light rail services, placing greater emphasis on serving and increasing VTA riders, and minimizing service reduction affecting residents in South Santa Clara County, according to the City of Cupertino website.

VTA believes this new plan would cost about 4 percent less to operate than the 2017 Next Network Plan. The final day for the public to submit comments is Feb. 28.
