Seniors get VTA bus to Senior Center

Bus line 34, called a "lifeline" to the outside world for some Mountain View seniors, will have a new route beginning Monday, July 12.

The VTA shuttle bus will stop running down Middlefield Road between Rengstorff Avenue and San Antonio Road. But seniors may be happy to know that it will begin stopping at the city's Senior Center on Escuela Avenue, which will have a bus stop installed out front for the first time. The city's Senior Advisory Committee had asked for the VTA to provide a stop there.

The bus runs Monday through Friday between downtown Mountain View and San Antonio Shopping center. Along the way it stops at a 253-unit senior housing development on Hackett and Montebello streets, where it is a much-needed service for seniors.
