Valley Rapid -- A New Way to Travel on El Camino Real

The El Camino Real Bus Rapid Transit Project would make changes to El
Camino Real/The Alameda between the Palo Alto Transit Center and
Downtown San Jose that would improve transit service and potentially
change the character and use of the street. The Project would upgrade
the 522 Rapid Bus service by installing enhanced transit stations that
function like rail stations, converting space allotted to general
purpose lanes or on-street parking to bus-only lanes in certain areas
and installing sidewalk bulbout stations that allow for faster stops.
The project would also use a new specialized vehicle and feature
technological improvements like transit signal priority—which holds a
green light for an approaching bus—and real time information at
stations so riders will know when the next bus will arrive. The
project could even install bicycle lanes along the corridor.
