Last day of line 76

Tomorrow is the last day of line 76, which goes from Downtown Los Gatos to the Santa Cruz Mountain area by Summit Road. Although VTA has tried to cut this route for many years, it did not do so because of Los Gatos High School students who live in the mountain area. For the next school year, those students will have to find a new way to get to school.

This site has an interesting review of line 76.

Line 76 is the only route that serves the mountain area. Although Highway 17 Express also travels over the hill, it does not have stops either at the summit nor in Los Gatos.

That's one of the lines I really wished I could have ridden before it went away. It's really too bad that there are no bus lines running into the mountains from this side. The Santa Cruz Metro lines on the other side do enjoy some popularity and provide access to all sorts of parks as well as mountain communities, but from here that requires taking the express all the way to Santa Cruz or at least Scotts Valley and backtracking.
