Visit the Online Open House for the Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis

The RTC invites the public to provide input for Milestone 3 of the Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis (TCAA) through an online public open house that will be available from Nov. 6 through Nov. 27, 2020.

The TCAA is a year-long study that evaluates high-capacity public transit alternatives to 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 June, the RTC has been working to evaluate the narrowed down short list of alternatives through a performance analysis. The results are now in and ready to be shared publicly. To maintain engagement and offer convenient participation in a safe environment while social distancing, the RTC is hosting an online public open house to allow the public to review information and submit comments on the TCAA process. In addition, more opportunities to interact directly with the TCAA team will be available during two scheduled live chat sessions on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 12-1:30 p.m. and Wednesday, Nov. 18 from 6-7:30 p.m.

Public input will be sought through the online open house until Nov. 27, 2020. To view details about the online public open house and live chat, visit
