Current status of public transit in Governor Gavin Newsom’s state budget proposal: not good. Unfortunately, the most recent budget proposals voted on by the legislature currently do not provide nearly enough funding to meet the need to prevent transit cuts and regrow ridership. This would force transit agencies like Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Caltrain to choose between preventing service cuts and important capital priorities, and would abandon $6 billion ($6,000,000,000) in federal matching funds.
Senator Scott Wiener is working hard to address this situation. Here’s more from Senator Wiener:
Inside the Santa Clara County Supervisors’ chambers where VTA Board Of Directors’ meetings are held.
It’s transit budget time again. Thursday’s Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) Board Of Directors meeting will be where they vote to approve – or reject – their proposed budget for the 2020 and 2021 Fiscal Year (FY).
Details on what VTA proposes – and our own alternate to fund additional, much-needed bus increases in Santa Clara County – are below.
