Could another assault on working families, the elderly, and the disabled be on the horizon? That may soon be the case. This Friday morning at 9:00am, the Board of Directors of the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) will discuss a proposal to reduce bus and light rail service by as much as 30% next year.
If at all possible, speak up during Public Comment at the VTA Board of Directors’ workshop on Friday morning at 9:00am. There, Board Members will discuss the service cut proposals on Agenda Item 3.1. Let the VTA Board know what public transit means to YOU, and that they must do whatever is needed to preserve your bus service. One of the VTA Board members supports use of 2016 Measure B funding to preserve as much transit service as possible.
Here’s information on how YOU can be heard in the online teleconference by computer or your own telephone.
View the video of the teleconference above, starting at 9am Friday morning.
More information on what you can do to help stave off VTA’s latest service cut proposal will be posted this weekend.
