Our Next Meeting: Thursday, Sept. 29 in San Jose

The Silicon Valley Transit Users will have its next meeting on Thursday, September 29 at 6:00pm at the San Jose Peace & Justice Center. It’s at 48 South 7th Street in San Jose. Here’s a map with VTA bus and light rail directions on getting to the San Jose Peace & Justice Center.

The agenda for next Thursday’s meeting:

  • What our position should be on the proposed El Camino rapid transit plans. VTA will start public meetings on the corridor on Thursday in Mountain View.
  • An update on expanded service on the 23 & 522 Rapid bus lines next year to address overcrowding seen on those bus lines – particularly at rush hour
  • Documented, successful ways to contact VTA Customer Service for issues with using the bus or light rail system.

The goal of our meetings: to ensure you are better informed and thus better able to hold the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) more accountable in providing better service to you. See you next Thursday!

Founder, Silicon Valley Transit Users
