VTA seeks comments on long-range Transportation Plan

Submitted By Brandi Childress

The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is responsible for bus, light rail and paratransit operations in Santa Clara County and also serves as the county's congestion management agency; in the latter capacity, VTA is responsible for preparing and adopting the county-wide transportation plan: Valley Transportation Plan (VTP). The VTP outlines transportation programs and investments for Santa Clara County over a 25-year period.

The VTP is updated every four years, aligning with updates to the Regional Transportation Plan prepared by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. The last update, VTP 2035, was adopted by the VTA Board in January 2009.

A series of public meetings will provide an opportunity for the general public to provide input and feedback to help shape the preparation of the VTP and learn more about Santa Clara County's transportation needs and planning process. These proposals will then be contained in the VTP 2040 document that will be adopted in January 2013.

The general public is encouraged to review the updated list of transportation proposals and to provide comments by visiting www.vta.org/vtp or by calling VTA Community Outreach at (408) 321-7575.

The VTP will be on the VTA Board of Directors' January 5, 2012 meeting agenda.
