      VTA PROPOSED SERVICE REDUCTIONS

      Due to continuing declines in economic conditions, the Santa Clara Valley
      Transportation Authority (VTA) is proposing to reduce bus and light rail
      services. On August 10-13, 2009, VTA will hold seven public meetings to
      discuss the proposed transit service reduction plan and to obtain the
      public’s comments on the plan at its October 1, 2009 meeting.

      If the VTA Board of Directors approves the plan, the transit service
      reductions will take effect on January 11, 2010.

      The general public is invited to attend any of these meetings. If you are
      unable to attend these meetings, you may submit your comments by:
