Monterey Bay Area Rail Network Integration Study
TAMC is developing 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. A draft of the study is anticipated to be published in winter 2020-21.
A presentation outlining the status of the study as of May 2020 is available here.
A Spanish-language interview about the survey on Radio Bilingue is available here.
