The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is seeking public opinion on accessibility issues related to the Tamien intermodal station in San Jose, California, to help shape the final design of a transit-oriented development (TOD) scheduled for construction near the station in 2020. 

The Tamien Station TOD is a project between VTA and developer UrbanCo-Tamien LLC, to develop nearly 7 acres of property near the station, which serves the VTA light-rail and Caltrain commuter-rail systems.

The VTA gathered feedback on the station’s accessibility during community meetings held between 2016 and 2018. However, the latest access study seeks to identify recommendations and projects to improve station connections.

An online survey is available through Nov. 11. VTA also will gather feedback through four local meetings to be held later this month.
