What could the future of rail transportation look like on the Central Coast? Over the last year, the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG) and Coast Rail Coordinating Council (CRCC) have engaged and sought input from various partner agencies, community representatives, and the general public to identify viable options for future rail travel on the Central Coast. The Coast Rail Corridor Study examined opportunities for expanding intercity rail and bus service and connectivity between Goleta and Salinas as well as the feasibility of implementing regional-commuter rail service between Paso Robles and Santa Maria.

As a result of valuable stakeholder input and technical analysis, SLOCOG has developed draft plans for the two analyses, which look at planned growth and land use, ridership modeling, service operations and equipment needs, potential governance, and funding options.

SLOCOG will hold a virtual public meeting to share study progress and key results of the study with the public and key stakeholders. Following the public meeting, the draft Service Implementation Plan (intercity analysis) and draft Passenger Rail Improvement Study (regional-commuter analysis) will go to the SLOCOG Board for approval and adoption on June 2nd.  Don’t miss your chance to participate in the virtual meeting.
