COMMUTER RAILROAD FEASIBILITY STUDY ON SELECTED LINES IN THE LOS ANGELES METROPOLITAN AREA

The objective of the report was to explore feasibility if installing and operating a limited scope rail commuter service over one Southern Pacific and two Santa Fe routes into Los Angeles, California. A package of data is provided including statistical compilations on the operational and physical characteristics of the rail lines under consideration. It is believed possible to inaugurate limited commuter service relatively early, employing Santa Fe trackage on the Santa Ana and Los Angeles route and the San Bernadino-Los Angeles route via Pasadena. Summary of principle statistics of the proposed routes is presented. Findings include annual deficits, projected ridership, marketing aspects, operational and capital costs and implementation of service.
