      Acterra Public Lecture Series: Jill Gibson - November 20

      Reception and gallery walk-through at 6:30 pm The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) BART Phase II Extension will bring BART to downtown San Jose and Santa Clara, connecting to CalTrain – creating a continuous rail link around the entire San Francisco Bay. The Phase II project was recently approved by the Federal Transit Administration into its new Expedited Project Delivery Pilot Program, which is intended to promote public-private partnerships in the development of major transit investments and to accelerate implementation. Come learn about the work being done to transform the South Bay into Transit Oriented Communities, which are sustainable, walkable, active, mixed-use communities all centered around the future BART stations.
