South Bay Team Speaks Up for Public Transit Funding and Electrification of Buses

Several supporters from the Mothers Out Front South Bay chapter spoke at the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) meeting in San Jose, California on January 9th, 2020 to urge the VTA to declare a climate emergency, expand bus routes, increase the number of buses, and transition to an all-electric bus fleet.

The VTA decided to take more feedback from the public and incorporate it into a formal resolution that will be voted on next month.
