The VTA Rapid is a planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network being planned for the Valley Transportation Authority’s most popular transit lines, including the El Camino Real corridor between Palo Alto and San Jose.
BRT is like a train on rubber tires that, when effectively implemented, provides fast, affordable, and frequent service with stress-free access to jobs, services, and other needs in a comfortable environment with modern conveniences. Additionally, BRT is a climate and health friendly system that effectively reduces greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants.
