Share your vision for Bay Area rail system
by Ashley Nguyen
The Metropolitan Transportation Commission, BART, Caltrain, and California High-Speed Rail Authority need your help developing a Regional Rail Plan for the Bay Area. The Plan will look at improvements and extensions of railroad, rapid transit, and high-speed rail services for the near (5 to 10 years), intermediate (10 to 25 years), and long-terms (beyond 25 years). Please join us at one of six community workshops to be held in November and December.
Topics for discussion include: improving the Bay Area's existing rail system; locations for new rail extensions and train stations; rail sharing between passenger and freight trains; planning for growth - building new homes near rail; and evaluating initial rail concepts.
