By attending this open house session, you will learn more about this study for a light rail transit (LRT) corridor to run between the planned Western LRT Corridor (from a junction south of Lincoln Fields Station) and Bayshore Station. At the meeting, City Staff will provide information on the process and objectives and identify preliminary design issues to be addressed by the study. You will have the opportunity to meet and discuss your comments with the study team.
The City's Transportation Master Plan (TMP 2013) identifies the Western Light Rail Transit Corridor Extension as a component of the future expanded rapid transit network, integral to achieving modal share targets for public transportation.
