WATCH: Envision Silicon Valley Meeting in Santa Clara

As a reminder: our group will be meeting VTA in Santa Clara, where they will detail their proposed transit sales tax measure.  That meeting will take place at 7pm at the Locatelli Student Activity Center at Santa Clara University, 500 El Camino Real, in Santa Clara. Here are transit directions to Santa Clara University, served by several rail lines and several VTA bus lines.

Can’t make it to Santa Clara tonight? VTA will also live-stream video via YouTube. The live stream starts at 7pm SHARP.

See you tonight!

Notes From Our March 27 Meeting

(Apologies for the delay in posting this. There have been some personal issues I have had to deal with.)

At our group meeting last Thursday, we discussed the need to get the word out on being safe as a pedestrian. This issue is in light of recent and tragic incidents such as:

More on this particular incident in a later post. Meanwhile, read and understand these safety tips from Caltrain on how to cross railroad tracksespecially if you drive a car.

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…
