THE FEASIBILITY OF UPGRADING PENINSULA PASSENGER RAIL SERVICES. FINAL REPORT

The feasibility of increasing use of Southern Pacific commuter services over the 47 mile Peninsula line between San Jose and San Francisco, CA., was studied under a grant from UMTA. Among potential means for increasing usage would be improved access, all-day transit-type operation, better connection with transit, and extension to a new San Francisco terminal. The experience of a private operator could be combined with the resources of public agencies to produce a staged expansion of service in response to changes in demand. Such steps should be part of an overall transportation plan for the Westbay Corridor.
