Ride VTA? Tell San Jose City Council You Matter!

Some members on the San Jose City Council think you, as a transit rider, don’t matter.  On Tuesday January 28, the San Jose City Council will vote on sending a letter to the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) opposing reallocation of funding to help increase bus and light rail service throughout Santa Clara County.

Details on what is going on – and how YOU can help stop this letter – are below.

More transit news later this week.  Note that the transit guides are being modified to reflect the new VTA schedule and service that took effect back on December 28.
