VTA is developing a new transit service plan
A changing financial outlook has made it clear that the Next Network Plan that was planned to be implemented when BART service to Santa Clara County begins is not financially sustainable.
VTA’s Board of Directors has asked staff to develop a new plan, which we are calling the 2019 New Transit Plan, that would cost about 4 percent less to operate than the Next Network Plan and would place a greater emphasis on increasing ridership.
VTA staff have developed a draft of the 2019 New Transit Plan that builds on the thousands of points of input VTA received while developing the Next Network Plan.
The Draft 2019 New Transit Plan proposes a number of changes while attempting to uphold Board direction and minimize impacts to current riders. We welcome your feedback and participation below. The final day to submit comments is February 28.
Attend a Community Meeting
VTA will hold six community meetings to collect input on the Draft 2019 New Transit Service Plan. Meetings will feature a presentation from VTA staff and opportunities to ask questions and provide input.
