 VTA Grand Jury Response
Because of transportation's impact on development of a community, a VTA Board appointment is often a much sought after responsibility among local elected officials.
However, it was recommended that the Policy Advisory Committee (an advisory committee composed of representatives from the County and all 15 Santa Clara County cities) needed to take a more proactive approach in reporting out on issues and offering recommendations to the Board.
As a result, over the past two financially difficult years, Santa Clara County transit riders have benefited from that decision because VTA was able to provide more service than would have been the case if the reserves were not there.

However, VTA, similar to the County Transportation Commissions in Southern California, would assume the responsibility for programming all state and federal funds that flow to Santa Clara County, with MTC playing a limited oversight role in terms of ensuring consistency with the RTP and the programming of funds in the other Bay Area counties.
