The City is in the process of planning a community shuttle to connect local Cupertino destinations and connect Cupertino to the growing regional transportation network. During Summer 2018, we conducted a survey to learn where the most popular destinations are, what times of the day people are most likely to ride, and other important details to help us plan an appropriate transit service for our community.

Thank you to those of you that participated! 804 community members took the shuttle survey and the results are available below. The survey results will be used to help guide City staff in planning for an appropriate transit service for Cupertino.

Survey Results

Click here for survey results. Results are shown both for "registered" and "unregistered users" separately, but contained within the same document. "Registered users" represent those who provided identifying information on the City's Open City Hall web page, while "unregistered users" are those that preferred to remain anonymous.

Of registered community members surveyed:

  • 81% would use a shuttle to access Caltrain;
  • 68% prefer a service with fewer stops & shorter wait times;
  • 84% think destinations are most important factor;
  • 61% prefer operational hours of 6am - 7pm;
  • 51% never use VTA;
  • 78% would access shuttle by walking

Top Scoring Destinations:

  1. Caltrain Station 
  2. Cupertino Library/Civic Center
  3. Main Street Cupertino
  4. De Anza College
  5. Vallco
  6. Destinations along Stevens Creek/De Anza Blvds

Next Steps

In Spring 2019, staff will bring a discussion item to City Council with the results of the survey, along with a variety of Cupertino-specific options, potential funding strategies, and a range of costs and funding strategies.
