Image - VTA

The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) began as a County department created by the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors on June 6, 1972 to oversee the region’s transportation system. Until 1995, VTA's primary responsibility since its creation was the development, operation and maintenance of the bus and light rail system within the county.

VTA separated from the County of Santa Clara and merged with the region’s Congestion Management Agency in January 1995, thus undertaking another responsibility: managing the county's blueprint to reduce congestion and improve air quality.
