      Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority provides 44.3 million passenger
      trips yearly and is an essential service for people to get to and from
      work, shopping, family, and activities.
      ·        Gov. Schwarzenegger's 2005
      proposal will cut more than $6.6 million from the local Santa Clara
      Valley Transit Authority budget.

       ·        It will rob the Bay Area of $118 million for Traffic Congestion Relief Program.
      ·        The 2004 budget already decimated service! We can't afford MORE REDUCTIONS in service!

      SPEAK OUT!
      Save VTA Service
