The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) has launched a new interactive web tool at www.envisionsv.org that invites the public to examine the trade-offs between new revenues, spending options, and key metrics.
 
Currently, this site features a survey where you can tell us about your goals and priorities. In early Fall, a citizens budget tool will enable you to select between different revenue options and spending options, as well as see how your choices “move the needle” on key metrics.

Visit the site today to participate, and please share the site on social media or with anyone you know that has an interest in how we invest in Santa Clara County's transportation system. If you share your vision, please use #EnvisionSV and tag @VTA on Twitter.

VTA's Envision Silicon Valley effort, which may result in a 2016 transportation ballot measure, is looking at needs, priorities, and projects representing all modes of transportation—transit, local roads, pavement, highways and active transportation. VTA is Santa Clara County’s congestion management agency, so in addition to operating transit we’re responsible for countywide transportation planning, funding and congestion relief.
 
Textizen
 
VTA is also working with Textizen, a text message-based survey platform, to gather input and share information with people using a tool many people have in their pockets: their cell phone. Because it doesn’t require internet access and most people can text, this platform enables us to engage with you conveniently wherever and whenever you want to participate.

You will soon begin to see posters around Santa Clara County at libraries and other public places with information about how to participate through Textizen.

We invite you to spread the word about the Textizen survey by downloading the poster and displaying it in your business, workplace, school, or any public space where you think interested people congregate.

You can learn more about the governance, purpose, stakeholder input and other aspects of the Envision Silicon Valley effort at ​www.vta.org/envision.​
