California Department of Transportation, in partnership with Amtrak through Section 403(b) funding, has achieved such success with its subsidized intercity services that it is now moving with plans to develop commuter and other intercity operations in the corridor extending from Sacramento to San Diego. Railroads have opposed proposed expansions because of lack of capacity to assure on-time performance for both passenger and freight trains. An associated article describes how Southern Pacific is transfering its San Francisco commuter service to Caltrans for operation through a purchase-of-service agreement.
