Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis Online Open House Now Open

The RTC is now seeking public input for Milestone 2 of the Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis (TCAA) through an online open house.

The TCAA is a year-long study that will evaluate high-capacity public transit alternatives that provide an integrated transit network for Santa Cruz County utilizing all or part of the length of the Santa Cruz Branch Rail Line as a dedicated transit facility. Intercounty and interregional connections to Monterey, Gilroy, the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond will be considered.

Since March, RTC staff and their Project Team have been working to screen the initial list of alternatives to narrow them down to a draft short list of alternatives that will be evaluated more quantitatively. The online open house provides an update on the TCAA planning effort and an opportunity to provide comments on the draft short list of alternatives as a result of the initial screening.

Public input will be sought through the online open house from April 13 – May 11. To view the online open house and provide your valuable input, visit For more information on the TCAA, visit
