Fire the ticket checkers, they are rude and overpaid.
Bus and Rail Service
This would be a Light Rail train that only stops at certain important stops. An example would be a train leaving Santa Teresa would head straight to Ohlone-Chynoweth, then Tamien, then Convention Center, the Santa Clara. Passengers at non-Express stops would transfer at the nearest Express stop for a faster ride on Light Rail. Unlike Express bus service, this should be regular fare.
Clipper!! Hello? What's taking so long? All the infrastructure is in place, can't we turn it on?
Implement Clipper, and DO NOT spend millions on new incompatible fare boxes, talk to AC Transit figure out what they have done and copy it pronto.
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.
use the clipper card for easier transfer from ac transit to vta
What if VTA had Express service (NEW Line 190) to/from Great Mall & Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station (via 1-680), connecting with WHEELS, BART, County Connection, SMART, MAX..etc.
