Among what we will discuss at our upcoming meeting on Thursday at 6pm in San Jose:
How we can address VTA’s shortage of buses throughout the county
VTA’s street improvement projects on Bascom Ave., Tasman Dr. and Story/Keyes Avenues – and what we can push for
Have anything else transit-related that we should be fighting for? Please address it at our meeting, BEFORE the agenda items listed. (Otherwise, you will have to wait until the end of the meeting to address your particular item.) Be prepared to discuss how YOU would help make it happen.
We meet at the San Jose Peace & Justice Center, 48 S. 7th Street in San Jose. Transit and driving directions to the Peace and Justice Center are found here.
Note that if you plan on driving to our meeting, there is limited parking in the back. Also, do not park in the Grocery Outlet Bargain Market parking lot across the street – you will be towed at your expense.

At this time, our group is still discussing our stance on VTA’s Measure B – a 1/2-cent transportation sales tax proposal on the November 8 ballot. This discussion is taking place on our email list and our Facebook page.
We also discussed VTA’s plans for transit service to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, and a meeting in Mountain View April 9 to determine transit needs in the Palo Alto and Mountain View area. Of the latter, member Michael Ludvig recommended increased service frequency on the 51 bus line (Moffett Field-De Anza College).
Lots of catching up to do…
