Community Shuttle

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The City is in the process of planning a community shuttle to connect Cupertino residents to local destinations and a 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! In total, 806 community members completed the shuttle survey, results are available below.

  • 83% rarely or never use VTA bus service
  • 79% would use a shuttle to reach Caltrain if available
  • 76% prefer fewer stops with faster travel times (and shorter wait times)
  • 77% would walk to a shuttle to ride (versus bike, wheelchair, scooter, or vehicle drop-off)
