Santa Clara County residents, get ready for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)! This modern form of public transit is coming soon to the Alum Rock/Santa Clara/El Camino Real Corridor, and could change the way the corridor looks and functions.
You can learn all about BRT in Santa Clara County in this beautiful video:
You can learn more about Valley Rapid at www.valleyrapid.org.
Of particular interest to SVBC is the prospect of bike lanes being added to compliment the dedicated bus lanes. That proposal, however, will need approval by each city along the way (San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Los Altos, and Palo Alto). If that sounds like a good idea to you, contact your City Council and let them know that you want the El Camino Corridor to live up to its potential as a route designed for all users of the road!
