Today, we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. He was born on January 15, 1929.

Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), BART and SamTrans are running their regular weekday schedule today.  Caltrain is running a special, modified schedule today as well.  By regular weekday schedule, it means the modified service hours for each agency due to the ongoing global pandemic.

Here’s Dr. King’s famous speech from the March On Washington For Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963.

Some of our goals in 2021 – including an action item for an upcoming VTA Workshop this Friday morning – will be in our next two posts.  This and other information on the site will be updated throughout the week to reflect local transit leadership in 2021.

Overall, we still have work to do to help achieve Dr. King’s dream. Let’s get to it.
