The report, issued by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, suggests that the 21.7-mile extension could eventually carry nearly 78,000 weekday riders. Project proponents, including San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzales, say the report is proof that subway expansion is a solution to traffic problems on Highways 680 and 880 into Silicon Valley. County supervisors and project opponents charge that planning of the project has been largely closed to the public.
