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.
Well, I got here by way of a link on the home page asking the question 'what would make you ride transit?' 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 »
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.
Currently, CalTrain monthly pass holders who purchase a two (2) zone ticket ($112.75 for adults) receive local credit on buses and light rail (for which the VTA adult pass costs $70 per month). I would like something analogous for the VTA Express passes. If someone, for example, holds a three zone ($159.00 for adults), they would get free rides on all VTA Express buses. Typically, I buy four zone CalTrain passes ...more »
Promote electronic cards, while reducing paper usage for passes.
Express light rail service should stop at Taimien also. This is a very popular transfer station to the Caltrain. It doesn't make sense not to stop at the Taimien stop.
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.
Emphasizes the options the trip planner offers.
Previously unavailable to take a trip like the trip planned in the multi-modal trip planner.
Says what it is and whom it is about. Plain and simple.
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 »
Everybody knows that public transit in America is a chicken and egg problem. People don't ride transit because the buses and trains aren't frequent and since people don't ride it frequently, there is no way a system can be built. A good incentive structure should be built for commuters to ride transit. Single, one-off, my-car-is-broken rides should be discouraged by increasing single ride fares and decreasing the fares ...more »
Doesn't everyone need or want to be "moved"?
Or perhaps VTA Pocket
