The GovDelivery service, used by many government agencies and organizations, was developed to provide residents with improved service and access to information.

The service has the capacity to electronically notify participants about information on VTA's Web site regarding topics pre-selected by the user.

Such topics include information about unexpected service changes, specific light rail and bus routes schedules, construction and planning projects and public meetings and agendas for the VTA Board of Directors meetings.

To sign up for the service, visit www.vta.org and click on the "Sign Up for E-mail Updates" button.
