Paint Buses Attractive Colors

How do you get 22-year-old college students to continue to take buses after college? How do you get 28-year-old professionals who want to help the environment, but who have never taken a bus, to consider stepping on a bus? The outside of our buses are the best opportunity to advertise them to potential riders ... or drive people away. How the buses are painted matters a lot. Right now buses are painted white with... more »

Express Buses to Mountain View and Sunnyvale

A lot of people work in Mountain View and Sunnyvale, so why are the express buses only going to Palo Alto and Fremont? There is only ONE EXPRESS bus from San Jose to Sunnyvale. And it only makes ONE trip a day each direction. All other buses that make that trip are LIMITED buses (and the "Rapid" 522), which take a LONG time. It seems like fast, frequent service from San Jose to MV or Sunnyvale would get more people... more »

Lower Fares

My son and I used to frequently take Light Rail to places we wanted to visit, however the cost became so outrageously expensive that it is much cheaper to drive and park than to ride. The more the fares increase, the less people prefer to ride. We would prefer to go "green", but not at thosse prices.

Lower the fare rates and get more people to use VTA to travel.

Commuter Express Service

I am loving the Commuter Express service, especially the free wi-fi and am now taking Light Rail 3 times per week. The morning times are perfect but, in the evening, they're kind of early. I am rarely done with work by 5pm so I usually miss the last Commuter Express train. Perhaps you could consider adding a 4th Commuter Express service leaving between 5:30-5:45pm from Baypointe?
