Another of my volunteer projects is a transportation advocacy site for a new BART extension in Santa Clara County. Patterned after the East Contra Costa BART Extension (eBART), the Silicon Valley VTA Sprinter project is a volunteer effort to help improve our transit system. The website is also a volunteer effort.
The proposal is for an eight station EDMU (Electro-Diesel Multiple Unity) train system. extending from the Blossom Hill Caltrain Station in the South, to the bay side community of Alviso in the North. This would provide a fast, clean transportation alternative between the large residential communities in South San Jose and the extensive business operations in North San Jose. Additionally, it would complement the existing Caltrain system, directly connect to the new BART extension at the Diridon station and supply a direct, high capacity feed to the entertainment facilities near the Great America station, such as the Levi Stadium.
The VTA Sprinter project is 100% the work of local, volunteer transportation activists.
