SamTrans to Hold Virtual Public Meeting on Dumbarton Rail Bridge Project

 

SamTrans will host a virtual public meeting to discuss the Dumbarton Rail Corridor Project on Monday, March 15. This meeting will allow local residents and community members to learn more about the project and ask questions to project staff.

The project is currently in the Strategic Planning Process, where the focus is on developing conceptual alternatives to connect Redwood City to Union City using the Dumbarton Rail Corridor. These alternatives will be based upon the community outreach and work with stakeholders that has taken place over the last two years. SamTrans, which owns the rail corridor, and Facebook are working to develop these alternatives analysis to determine what a public transit option could potentially look like using the old rail bridge. This work will be completed by spring 2021 at which time SamTrans will continue its role leading the project for the region.

The end goal of the project is to provide crossbay transit service within the Dumbarton Corridor, connecting Caltrain to ACE, BART, Capitol Corridor and California High Speed Rail. SamTrans is working with local and regional funding partners on a finance plan for the project going forward.  Currently, there is some funding included in Measure W and Regional Measure 3 for the project.
