MILPITAS SMART. The City of Milpitas launched its On Demand, microtransit service Milpitas SMART (Simple Mobile Access to Reliable Transit) with a ribbon cutting ceremony held at City Hall on September 15, 2022. Milpitas SMART offers an affordable service to Milpitas’ commuters, including those not conveniently served by transit, and significant vulnerable and transit-dependent populations by supporting and complementing the Milpitas BART Station and VTA’s existing bus and rail services. The program combines the convenience of a ride-hailing service like Uber or Lyft with the capacity and affordability of a more traditional shuttle or vanpool service. The regular adult fare is $2.50 per ride and $1.00 per ride for youth, disabled, and low-income persons. Children 5 years of age and younger can ride for free. Riders are able to request service through the Milpitas Smart Mobile App and will be picked up from their location within 15 minutes. Riders can be picked up or dropped off anywhere throughout Milpitas as long as the trips starting or end point is at a Milpitas Hub (Milpitas Transit Center, Great Mall, City Hall, and VTA Alder Station). Please note that the drop off and pick up location may be within a short walking distance of selected location. So, spread the good news and download the app today!

CATALYTIC CONVERTER PROGRAM. The City of Milpitas is launching a new program to deter automobile catalytic converter theft crimes. The business enrollment phase is currently underway. The program is funded by a $200,000 allocation of Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) dollars and will be available for 3 months or until the funding is expended, whichever is sooner. In partnership with the City, local automotive business will provide metal rebar or protective plating services to add an additional layer of protection to deter catalytic converter theft for Milpitas residents. Milpitas residency will be determined by the Milpitas Police Department through an online system. As part of this program, the City will reimburse automotive businesses in the amount of $400/vehicle, up to a maximum of $10,000 per business. If the cost of metal rebar or protective plating exceeds $400/vehicle, the Milpitas resident will be responsible for the remainder of the cost. Etching is not eligible for reimbursement through this program. The City encourages Milpitas residents to register and avail of the $400/vehicle discount when the program launches in the Fall.
