Do you know if SamTrans is still considering pulling the 390, KX and RX bus routes or radically changing them?

The RX is an express that goes to SF.

The 390 and KX are now our only bus connections to Santa Clara County on the El Camino corridor, since the VTA pulled the 22 bus. The KX is the airport express and then on to SF, taking lots of employees and travelers to and from the airport and points in between. Clearly any bus that services the airport needs to be in service after 10 pm.
