Some Catching Up To Do

Now that I have finally settled in my new home (more on that in a future post), look for the following stories on the blog within the next week:

  • East San Jose residents fight a VTA proposal to eliminate a BART stop on 28th Street by Five Wounds Church
  • An upcoming meeting next week in East San Jose regarding public for more bike lanes in that area
  • The real reason why VTA’s ticket vending machines were down all day recently
  • More on how we all can help make VTA buses and light rail run ON TIME

Look for blog posts on these – and more – coming soon.

Happy Veterans Day 2014!

thank you veterans

On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I would like to wish you – and all of our current and retired Armed Forces – a Happy Veterans’ Day!

As a reminder, many public transit agencies are running on a regular weekday schedule today. Examples include but are not limited to:

  • Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA)
  • Caltrain
  • BART
  • SamTrans
  • AC Transit
  • San Francisco MUNI

Also, many VTA bus lines serving downtown San Jose will be rerouted to support the city’s annual Veterans’ Day parade. The VTA bus rerouting will occur from 9am-2pm today.

Once again, please enjoy Veterans’ Day today and keep yourself safe and sane!
