Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis Underway and Public Input Being Sought on Project

The Regional Transportation Commission in partnership with Santa Cruz METRO has begun the Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis (TCAA), a year-long study that will evaluate high-capacity public transit options 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.

Learn more by visiting the project webpage or attending one of our upcoming Public Open House meetings in February where you will be able to review displays and talk one-on-one with project team members.
