(Apologies for the delay in posting this. There have been some personal issues I have had to deal with.)
At our group meeting last Thursday, we discussed the need to get the word out on being safe as a pedestrian. This issue is in light of recent and tragic incidents such as:
- A pedestrian vs. cyclist collision on the campus of San Jose State, where an 89-year old female pedestrian involved died
- A freight train vs. automobile collision in Morgan Hill where a 20-year old woman who allegedly drove her SUV onto the railroad tracks was killed by an oncoming freight train
- This near-miss of a Caltrain vs. pedestrian collision in Redwood City:
We also discussed VTA’s plans for transit service to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, and a meeting in Mountain View April 9 to determine transit needs in the Palo Alto and Mountain View area. Of the latter, member Michael Ludvig recommended increased service frequency on the 51 bus line (Moffett Field-De Anza College).
Lots of catching up to do…
