VTA’s transit service network is made up of a total of 60 routes, woven together and stretching from Palo Alto to Gilroy. Have you ever given much thought to how the complex system comes together? VTA wants to share with our community how we develop transit service plans at our upcoming Ask VTA event.
Planning & Design & Ops, Oh My! Transit Service Planning
Mon, June 5, 2023, 6:00 PM
Online via Zoom
VTA transportation planners and schedulers will walk through the process of creating a transit service plan for Santa Clara County, which must account for various factors, including the number of operators available, the number of buses/trains available, bus stop locations, travel patterns, and traffic conditions. Through mapping out bus routes, adjusting bus frequencies and operating hours and working with cities to secure safe and accessible bus stop facilities, VTA’s staff works diligently on developing a plan that meets the community’s needs year-round.
Whether transporting a student to school or an executive to the Berryessa Transit Center, VTA’s network is essential in connecting riders throughout the valley. Anyone interested in the inner workings of transit service planning should join and bring their questions.
Ask VTA is a new monthly series that facilitates questions and answers to share information and spur conversation on topics that shape transportation, climate and land use issues. For more information about the series, please visit www.vta.org/ask-vta.
