At its March 6 meeting, the VTA Board received the Supplemental EIR for the Vasona LRT extension. This $175 million project will add one or two new stations, and expand the Winchester station.

And here is the new Vasona Junction Station-and-Park-and-Ride lot:

By the year 2035, the extension is projected to generate 729 new daily transit trips. How awesome is that!
