There are two options; a dedicated median lanes, or mixed flow. Theearly concept plan from San Jose to Mountain (to Showers) would include 4 regularvehicle lanes and 2 dedicated BRT lanes in the median, then switch to mixed flowtravel lanes within Palo Alto (final configuration still to be determined). Anticipate30% reduction in travel time compared to local bus routes. PA has a lesser need fordedicated median lanes due to estimated ridership, congestion, and being theterminus of the route.-Questions from PABAC members: what types of bike capacities? On Board? Frontload racks only? The busses would have at a minimum 2 racks. On-board bikehangers are possible at the expense of seating capacity. Longer term plans topossibly extend into San Mateo County, but not included in the current project.The existing 522 VTA lane will become the BRT line.6.   SAN ANTONIO ROAD – MOUNTAIN VIEW CONNECTION IN BIKE PLANAND SAN ANTONIO SHOPPING CTR EIRBruce England from City of Mountain View BPAC describes issues with theproposed San Antonio Shopping Center project.
