Major VTA Service Changes On Dec. 28

Back In Action – and More…

On behalf of the Silicon Valley Transit Users, I want to thank our fallen members of our Armed Forces on Memorial Day. Without your sacrifice, none of us would be able to enjoy the freedoms in our republic we enjoy right now.

Let’s also thank Andrew Boone, Monica Mallon, and Judy Purrington for helping to keep the group running behind the scenes  They haven’t had time to formally help update the web site; hence why you have not seen any updates on here from them.

Personal issues I described previously resolved (for now), I want to address some Silicon Valley and other public transit issues. Read more below.

This Thursday, Sam Comes To Our Club

The Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Board Chair will see some of his managers this week.  San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo – also VTA Board Chair this year – will be our guest at our group’s upcoming meeting this Thursday in San Jose. 

TIME/DATE: Thursday, April 26 at 6pm
PLACE: San Jose Peace & Justice Center, 48 S. 7th Street (between Santa Clara and San Fernando Streets), San Jose
GETTING THERE: Many VTA bus lines like the 22, 522 Rapid, 72, 73 and Highway 17 Express stop near the Peace and Justice Center.  There is limited bicycle and automobile parking behind the building, so it’s advisable to take public transit to and from the building.  There is also wheelchair access behind the building.

The agenda and a toll-free dial-in number to the meeting follow…

We Meet This Coming Thursday

We will have our first group meeting of 2018 this Thursday evening in San Jose.  Plans are being finalized now to have a special guest from VTA take your input on public transit needs in Santa Clara County.  Stay tuned to this space for more details – including a dial-in toll-free telephone number to join our meeting live.
