"We continue to use the latest technology to inform our customers of bus and light rail changes," said Michael T. Burns VTA General Manager. "We want to ensure that VTA customers can access up-to-date information with ease."
In October, VTA Board of Directors authorized a revised service reduction plan to fill a budget shortfall due to the elimination of the state transit fund and the decline in sales tax revenue. The Board adopted a revised service reduction plan that incorporated public comments and input from VTA Advisory Committees. Many other transit agencies in the region are facing similar service cuts. VTA's revised service reduction plan consists of, on average, an eight percent reduction in bus service and a 6.5 percent reduction in light rail service.
