VTA Hearings on El Camino Real Bus Rapid Transit

From TransForm:

After months of planning, environmental analysis, numerous public meetings and listening to community comments VTA is releasing the Draft Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Assessment.

VTA will hold four public hearings/meetings to share the draft results and listen to comments and concerns from the community. VTA is evaluating seven alternatives (including station options and options that vary the extent of the dedicated lane) for providing BRT along El Camino. Come share which alternative you prefer, and your thoughts on how El Camino Real BRT can best benefit everyone who walks, bikes, takes transit, and drives along the corridor.

To learn more or offer formal comments about the project, please attend one of the following public hearings/meetings. VTA will use the Draft EIR/EA and comments received to select a locally preferred alternative.  The same format and content will be offered at each meeting.
