VTA staff proposes Next Network bus & light rail service increases be "dead on arrival"

There are 3 comments on the Green Caltrain story from Tuesday Aug 28, titled VTA staff proposes Next Network bus & light rail service increases be "dead on arrival". In it, Green Caltrain reports that:

At the August 17th meeting of the VTA board Ad Hoc Financial Sustainability Committee, VTA staff proposed that Next Network bus and light rail service increases be "dead on arrival" - a 5% service cut, instead of 10% service increase, in response to deep budget deficit of $50M-$60M per year including operating and maintenance. In response, advocates and policy analysts are encouraging creative thinking to address the budget gap without triggering a spiral of service cuts and ridership decreases.
