Proposed 2019 New Transit Service Plan | Express Bus Routes

 

New Express Routes Service Model

The Draft Plan proposed to discontinue four express routes (101, 122, 182 and 185) and decrease trips on four others (102, 103, 121 and 168). These proposals were based on the high cost per boarding that VTA has incurs for peak-period, directional Express trips (over $30/rider compared to $7/rider for VTA’s core routes).

The Final Plan proposes to defer the Draft Plan’s proposed Express service decreases until early 2020 so that VTA can respect the financial contributions that employers have made to purchase annual SmartPasses for their employees. In early 2020, VTA will implement a new Express Route program model that includes third-party funding partnerships that would offset the high cost of operation and bring the routes into compliance with VTA’s performance standards.
