Study Recommends Electric Rail.
The draft Transit Corridor Alternatives Analysis study is released and shows that rail transit will provide the fastest, most reliable, most equitable, and most climate-friendly public transit to serve our county. Rail transit is also the only option guaranteed to preserve the easement so that trail construction can continue. For these reasons and more, the study recommends the RTC choose passenger rail.
Opposition is Fierce.
Transit opponents are working hard behind the scenes to convince the RTC to abandon the tracks and to prevent any possibility of transit in the corridor. As well as erasing any possibility of future rail transit in Santa Cruz County, this would embroil trail construction in costly and time consuming litigation and new environmental review,
