Monterey Bay Area Rail Network Integration Study

Map of the 2040 Vision from the 2018 California State Rail Plan

TAMC has just kicked off the work on a Monterey Bay Area Rail Network Integration Study. This work is funded by a Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) grant. The purpose of this study is to lay the groundwork for implementing the 2018 California State Rail Plan in the Monterey Bay Area by determining the optimal options for: rail connectivity and operations, equipment needs, governance, and community benefits for service between Monterey County and Santa Clara County, Monterey and Santa Cruz, and the Coast Rail Corridor. This study will also assist TAMC by providing the data needed to prepare grant applications for funding new stations at Pajaro/Watsonville, Castroville, Soledad and King City.

Currently, the Caltrans website is under development. Until the full State Rail Plan is available, excerpts pertaining to the Central Coast are available here.

Deliverables under this contract will be posted here when available:

  • Existing Conditions Analysis
  • Future Network Service Vision
  • Governance and Operations Models Memo
  • Benefits Assessment Memo
  • Network Integration Study
