VTA is run by a group of morons who trying to keep their union buddies employed at the expense of taxpayer while screwing commuters. Nobody rides the buses on El Camino now! This will kill any business located on El Camino.

Caltrans to redo ECR without bus lanes. The new plan is to have four car lanes running North and four car lanes running South. Buses will be banned on ECR forever.

That is great news. After all ECR is a state highway. California State Rt. 82 and not VTA Rt. 22 or Rt. 522. No one rides on the VTA buses anyway. VTA= Very Tacky Airheads!

Buy your own bus and hog ECR big time. If you hit someone or thing just say "Oh, so sorry, I make big hit on ECR".

I received a mailing from the VTA asking what its Environment Impact Report (EIR) for the new El Camino Real (aka GRAND BUOLEVARD) should include. I suugested an evaluation of traffic on cross streets and alternate transportation routes. There is a GRAND BUOLEVARD group that will bring its show to Santa Clara on Feb. 21 and to Mountain View on Feb. 28. The driving force seems to be makung this area useful to corporations looking for infrastructure and relatively cheap labor. Existing residents will need to adjust or leave.
