VTA invites community to transportation meeting

Submitted By Aiko Cuenco

The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, May 28 to discuss proposals for transportation improvements as part of the Milpitas Community-Based Transportation Plan (CBTP) study.

The purpose of the public meeting is to provide residents an opportunity to hear a presentation and provide comments on the study's outreach findings and proposed solutions.

VTA has been working with the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC), City of Milpitas, and various community-based organizations for several months to conduct local planning efforts in Milpitas to address transportation needs.

The goal of the planning process is a community plan that identifies local transportation needs, its potential solutions and an action plan with possible funding sources for implementing those solutions.

Extensive public outreach in Milpitas show bus related issues regarding frequency, reliability and cost of fares to be top concerns in the community.

The proposed transportation improvements to be presented at the public meeting aim to address these concerns with proposed bus route modifications as well as other transit improvements.

Milpitas residents are invited to attend the last public meeting scheduled for the Milpitas CBTP study and provide input on the proposed transportation improvements.

Community feedback received from the public outreach process as well as from the public meeting will be incorporated into the final report.

The plan is scheduled to be completed in July. For more information, contact Aiko Cuenco at aiko.cuenco@vta.org
