VTA Stevens Creek Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit Project Santa Clara County, CA

When completed, the Stevens Creek Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will provide service at 13 stations along the 8.6-mile corridor. It will travel through San Jose, Santa Clara, and Cupertino and link San Jose’s Downtown Transit Mall with De Anza College in Cupertino. This project is proceeding in two phases. The first phase will provide initial planning, including stakeholder concept plans and preliminary traffic engineering. The second phase will be a detailed impact assessment for the EIS/EIR.

For the initial planning phase, CHS Consulting Group is responsible for preparing conceptual plan views and cross-sections of the BRT system form De Anza College in Cupertino to downtown San Jose. CHS is also responsible for performing traffic analysis for 47 intersections along the entire corridor.  The scenarios include center running BRT from De Anza to Valley Fair Mall and side-running BRT or mixed-flow operation from Valley Fair Mall to downtown San Jose. CHS will be responsible for preparing detailed traffic impact analysis for both in-corridor and off-corridor intersections for all EIR scenarios. Analysis will consider factors such as improvements underway to the I-280/I-880/Stevens Creek Boulevard Interchange, and the concerns and constraints of stakeholders including De Anza College, Valley Fair Mall, and the three cities along the route.
