VTA has officially opened two brand-new Downtown San Jose bus stations, designed to show San Jose's rich history and tech-filled present day.
The Downtown Eastbound station on Santa Clara Street, near 2nd Street, represents San Jose's rich cultural diversity and agricultural innovation. The station at City Hall is designed to represent the process of filing a patent, including various patent drawing conventions.
Kim Walesh, Deputy City Manager and Director of Economic Development at the City of San Jose, says that transportation plays a "critical" role in the appeal of Downtown San Jose.
“What we hear from companies is they want access to talent, transportation options, and amenities. Once people realize that BART is accessible at Berryessa and that the BRT is modern, frequent and fast, that connection from downtown to BART will be really key.”
Indeed, VTA is an integral part of the City of San Jose and Silicon Valley, and with future connections to BART coming in the next couple years, it will only continue to become more influential in a growing, thriving South Bay.
