Document Description
The BART Silicon Valley Project (formerly referred to as the Silicon Valley Rapid Transit Corridor or SVRTC Project) consists of a 16.1-mile extension of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system from the planned Warm Springs Station in Fremont through Milpitas and San Jose to Santa Clara. See Exhibit 1. Several design changes have occurred since the project was approved in 2007. The most substantial change is that the project would be constructed in phases, Although VTA is committed to building the full 16.1 mile extension, the current state of the economy requires that the project be built with a phased-construction approach.
