Your help is needed again, at the regional transit level. On Monday, help the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) get more funding from part II of the COVID-19 CARES Act Federal Stimulus package. You can do this at the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) Transit Recovery Task Force meeting at 2pm. There, they will discuss how to divvy up the remaining funds for other Bay Area transit agencies.
We’ve been informed that all 27 transit agencies in the Bay Area are fighting over the funds now. VTA is advocating for one funding option (2b) that includes equity in the formula used to distribute the funds. Meanwhile, other agencies like BART and Caltrain are fighting against it.
Here’s more of what YOU can do to help on Monday afternoon.
