What are the benefits of Phase II?

VTA's BART Silicon Valley Phase II Project will be the largest infrastructure project in Santa Clara County. The community will see numerous benefits from it, including 

  • A one seat ride from San José and Santa Clara to destinations all around the Bay Area through frequent and reliable transit 

  • New jobs in Santa Clara County, in addition to new connections to thousands of jobs around the Bay Area 

  • Reduced construction impacts through the single-bore tunnel construction method 

  • Transit oriented communities that provide increased access to jobs, housing, and education, making commuting without a vehicle possible 

  • Reduced traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions by providing a transportation alternative to driving
