I hope that this passes. As a former resident of the area in the late 70s/early 80s, I was hoping that the extension would happen then, at least from the Fremont side. I used to drive to Fremont, then take the BART to downtown SF ($1.35 each way), the Oakland As games, and one time to UC Berkeley. Now, here it is 25+ years later, and the extension still hasn't happened. Two-thirds vote will be extremely difficult, and I wish you well.

Unfortunately VTA is a bloated organization that has been poorly managed for so many years. What they know best is how to enrich themselves with bloated salaries and pensions. Years of records and audits have spoken loudly. VTA has lost its credibility in operating its existing business, let alone expanding into other ventures. The public simply cannot entrust more money into VTA's hands. It'll be a total waste.
