Transit Ridership Improvement Program


The Transit Ridership Improvement Program is an agency-wide effort to increase ridership on VTA and improve VTA's operating revenue. It consists of multiple efforts that aim to make public transit faster, more frequent and more useful for Santa Clara County travelers.

VTA's Next Network

BART service is expected to begin to the new stations at Milpitas and Berryessa/North San José. These stations do not currently have adequate VTA transit service and VTA’s transit network will need to be redesigned to better connect to BART.  This creates an opportunity to address other issues like VTA’s flagging ridership and declining farebox rate. VTA’s Next Network undertook an extensive community engagement process throughout the summer of 2016 to ask how we could make our transit service more useful.

Light Rail Efficiency Project

The Light Rail Efficiency Project consists of a number of physical and service improvements to VTA’s light rail system designed to increase travel speeds and safety and better serve travelers along the light rail corridors. Learn more about the Light Rail Efficiency Project.
