VTA's Next Network

VTA developed a transit service update that will be implemented when the two new Transit Center/BART stations open, located in Milpitas and the Berryessa area of San Jose. VTA’s proposed bus service promises to be robust with 28 buses an hour at the San Jose/Berryessa Transit Center and 42 buses an hour at the Milpitas Transit Center. In Spring 2017, the final plan was presented to the VTA Board of Directors for their approval.

The Transit Service Plan

  • Increases service levels in high-ridership areas and decreases service levels in low-ridership areas
  • Increases frequencies on many routes
  • Expands the number of Rapid Routes
  • Increases the number of residents and jobs with access to frequent service by 150,000 and 160,000 respectively
  • Extends service later in the evening on many routes and adds more service on weekends

In Milpitas, three bus routes will arrive every 15 minutes–Routes 60, 66 and 70. Routes running every half hour include one new route from the west valley, Route 20, as well as the existing Routes 47, 66, 70 and 71. In addition, AC Transit Route 271 will provide 30 minute headways. Light rail service will run every 7.5 minutes, seamlessly connecting riders to BART through a new pedestrian overcrossing.

At the San Jose/Berryessa Transit Center, there will be five bus routes running every 15 minutes, including Routes 61, 70, 77, 500 and 523. In addition, Routes 61 and 70 will run on a 30 minute frequency.
