    That’s pretty sneaky — the corporate shuttle program is temporarily extended by one year to avoid environmental review. As I understand it, on January 1, 2016, VMT (vehicle miles travelled) will be the new standard state-wide compared to LOS (level of service) for CEQA due to SB 743. It’s hard to argue against the corporate shuttle program reducing VMT.
