With construction of the Santa Clara/Alum Rock Bus Rapid Transit project scheduled to begin in late 2012, the City of San Jose and VTA will co-host an open house to inform the community and answer questions on the project with a special focus on the Downtown San Jose segment and stations.

What is Bus Rapid Transit?

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), is a high-quality, high-speed form of transit that provides the same service and amenities as light rail but at a much lower implementation cost. BRT uses specialized vehicles that operate on city streets and in dedicated lanes rather than on a fixed guideway. Overall, BRT is designed to improve the speed, reliability and identity of bus transit.
