More EcoPass incentives or discount fares

It would be a good idea to provide EcoPasses or a special student montly fare to students at the various colleges and universities that are within VTA's service area in order to encourage their ridership. Younger students who aren't old enough to drive are covered by Youth fare but college students are not. Maybe even a yearly pass that is valid between August and June for a reasonable price. VTA should also attempt to ...more »

Coordinate 180 departures w/actual BART arrivals on Raider-game

Allow up to 8 minutes "grace" (depending on actual BART arrivals) to Line 180 departures from Fremont BART on Raider-game Sundays. My BART train scheduled to arrive Fremont at 5:38 yesterday was 7 minutes late. I arrived at the 180 bus stop 2 minutes late and had to wait (with a dozen or more other passengers) an additional 28 minutes. Thanks.

So, my answer is that it's something that's not going to happen, if it happens at all, for quite some time. Many of the city & residential areas in this county are simply not designed for frequent & affordable public transportation. They're designed for cars (big wide streets & lanes). There is a small effort ...more »

Reduce Day Pass Fare for Non-Express Buses

Reduce the price of the day pass for non-express buses. Over the past two months I have become very familiar with the system. Most of the time however it is not worth getting a day pass because of the cost of the pass and the time it takes to travel from destinations, including waiting at bus stops. If the price of the day pass was reduced to 4 or 5 dollars, I would be more likely to use VTA.

More Park/Ride Light Rail Stations

As we know that VTA does not cover each and every location and even when there is coverage the frequency of buses is very low. There are quite a few people who want to use public transit like light rail atleast part of their commute and the other part by their cars. Unlike caltrain , vta has very little park & ride lots.This makes it very difficult for commuters who want to use cars as part of their commute. VTA should ...more »
