Submitted By Brandi Childress
The public is invited to attend an outreach event on March 3, 2012 at Great Mall, Milpitas, to learn more about Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) projects and initiatives including VTA's Express Bus service (a new Express Bus will be onsite for the public to view), State Route 237 Express Lanes, the I-880 High Occupancy Vehicle Project, BART Silicon Valley and Clipper.
Project staff will be on hand at the Great Mall Transit Center which is located at the intersection of Great Mall Parkway (leading to the Great Mall) and Main Street in Milpitas. The bus depot portion of the transit center is located at street level, just east of the light rail station.
VTA is an independent special district that provides sustainable, accessible, community-focused transportation options that are innovative, environmentally responsible and promote the vitality of our region. VTA is responsible for bus, light rail and paratransit operations and also serves as Santa Clara County's congestion management agency.
As such, VTA is responsible for county-wide transportation planning, including congestion management issues, specific highway improvement projects, pedestrian and bicycle improvement projects and provides these services throughout the county, including the municipalities of Campbell, Cupertino, Gilroy, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Milpitas, Monte Sereno, Morgan Hill, Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Jose, Santa Clara, Saratoga and Sunnyvale. VTA continually builds partnerships to deliver transportation solutions that meet the evolving mobility needs of Santa Clara County.
