Make bus stops closer to each other at intersections where commuters transfer to other bus lines so that they don't miss their connection because they have to cross the street to get to their bus stop.
For Line 180 Express, instead of having the line enter/exit I-880 from Great Mall Parkway, the line should enter/exit I-880 to/from Montague Expwy., then take Montague to Great Mall Parkway, then turn into the Great Mall Transit Center, thus creating faster service to/from San Jose and Milpitas.
