I applaud the idea of a bus stop in front of the Senior Center. I just wish the bus ran 7 days, not 5, a week; and more frequently and for a longer period. The bus runs hourly starting and ending at the San Antonio Transit Center (including a 10-15 minute break) beginning at 9:12 am and ending at 2:59 pm.

The article would have benefited from links to the coming VTA bus schedules and route map for line 34. (See below.) They show that only the eastbound trips stop at the Senior Center. These trips go from the Senior Center to the Mountain View Transit Center (train station). Seniors going to the San Antonio Transit Center must stay on the bus for the westbound trip.

(This shows the stop at the Senior Center whereas the other map does not, so I presume it's the coming map.)
