2019 New Transit Service Plan

The VTA Board of Directors has adopted a new transit service plan that will be implemented when BART service to Santa Clara County begins by the end of 2019.

In 2017, VTA adopted the Next Network Plan, which was a from-scratch redesign of the transit network that aimed to increase ridership and improve VTA’s cost-effectiveness by expanding the frequent network.

A change in VTA’s financial outlook prompted revisions to the Next Network Plan in early 2019.

  • A draft of the revised plan, called the 2019 New Transit Service Plan, was released for public comment in January and February of 2019.
  • In March, VTA staff reviewed over 1,500 public comments while developing the Final 2019 New Transit Service Plan.
  • VTA’s Board of Directors approved the plan in May 2019, and it will be implemented when BART service begins by the end of 2019.
