"What improvements would you like to be made to local public transportation?"

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nadezhda Banchik

"I'd like the bus to run a little later at night and more frequently, because sometimes we get out of work late."

Sergio Gutierrez, Redwood City

"I like the light rail. The bus is faster, but the light rail is very pleasant. I think it is very good on Saturday and Sunday. However, if the buses were running more frequently, people would be taking buses on Saturdays and Sundays, too."

Tina Mezzetta, Mountain View

"Actually, the public transportation is very convenient. However, I'd like more routes, in particular, to San Francisco."

Ankit Peajapati, San Jose

"I just want the public transportation to be accurate and on time. Sometimes buses arrive to a stop five or 10 minutes before the scheduled time, and if there is nobody waiting they don't stop."

Rommel de Leon, Mountain View

"What would I change for the bus service? I guess the price. It used to be $1.25 and now is going to $1.35 — that's too much."

Achiles Armani, Mountain View
