It is very apparent that VTA leadership prioritizes San Jose over north or even farther south SCC.

We all know that San Jose is the largest city by population but many of those who depend on VTA, particularly to get to downtown San Jose, live outside the city.

I don't know the answer, but if VTA is to grow, then movement of people in an efficient, reliable, timely and affordable fashion, has to be county wide. If not, then they will continue to lose ridership. At present, those guidance points are ignored.
