SAN DIEGO l Public Transport

Though what is the probability of a massive LRT expansion?

Hard to say. There are no more easy additions as when MTS bought the SD&AE as far as right of way goes unless they can build over the freeway medians. That would cause problems as the construction work would screw up road traffic for quite a while. That means more street running.

Maybe the 125, 94 and 54 corridors may be good places to consider expanding LRT service. For example from downtown SD via the Blue Line
to CA 54 out to and perhaps past Cuyamaca College. The 94 corridor could also be used to the same college and continue north to El Cajon or Bostonia or even Lakeside. Or a new branch could come off of the Green Line at Waring Road and continue to Brunswick Ave, Navajo Road, Fletcher Parkway, Broadway and then up 2nd Street to Winter Garden. The 125 service could start at Carlton Hills and then go to Grossmont College, ride the Green and Orange lines to Lemon Grove and then follow the 125 down to interchanges with the 94 and 54 services and continue south to Otay Mesa Road and run along the border to the new entrance on the US side of the Tijuana airport.

I think either the MTS or SANDAG websites have some long range planning maps for LRT service in San Diego. If I remember right, they had LRT lines the length of I-805, spurs from the soon to be constructed Mid Coast line to Pacific Beach and Mira Mesa, and additional (possibly street car) lines on 30th Street, Park Blvd, and the Little Italy area.

I was looking at that earlier today.

I didn't see anything about a proposed 805 corridor so perhaps the idea has been forgotten.

I think there was something on here some time back about the spurs to Pacific Beach and Mira Mesa. But I didn't see anything more about them on the SDMTS and SANDAG websites.

And the most recent publication on the 30th street line to Balboa Park is from 2012.

Here is the map I was referring to...

My mistake re the I-805 line, it was actually a line down I-15 from Tierrasanta to SR-94.

Thanks for that.

In three months that plan will be five years old. I wonder if there hasn't been or will be an update at the 5 year point.
