Live or work in Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills or Cupertino?

You are invited to a meeting to discuss the North Central County Bus Improvement Plan.  It is a study of north/south bus routes in the cities of Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara and Cupertino.  The study is being undertaken as a companion planning effort to the three Bus Rapid Transit projects, which, when implemented, are projected to result in increased system ridership and new opportunities to connect to and improve service on north/south routes.

The study will also recommend service changes to address changes in travel demand that have occurred as a result of new residential, office and commercial developments in these cities.  The study recommendations will target 2015 (the next scheduled major service change) and 2018 (when BRT is expected to be operating on El Camino Real) for implementation.

We hope you can join us at an upcoming meeting to discuss future VTA bus service in the cities of Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, and Cupertino.
