Published on

The FAST Plan was developed by a collaboration of community groups an an alternative to the official regional transit plan in order to apply cutting-edge principles to developing a more effective, world-class transit system for the San Diego metropolitan region.

Part II introduces the elements or building blocks of the FAST Plan. It shows how and where we deployed the right infrastructure in the right place to create a truly effective rapid transit network.

  4. 4. We saw in Part I the three dimensions that San Diegans value in a rapid transit system: connectivity, time, and the experience. Building from that, we looked at regional commute patterns. © 2013 by The Mission Group FAST Plan: How to Create a World Class Transit System 4
  5. 5. Detailed Market Analysis Some Top Commute Trip Destinations Trips: 50,000 100,000 150,000 Greater Golden Triangle Downtown Kearny Mesa Palomar Airport Road Mission Valley Miramar Road Poway Industrial Park The challenge in San Diego is to link dispersed origins with multiple destinations—which requires extensive “criss-crossing” of the region. © 2013 by The Mission Group FAST Plan: How to Create a World Class Transit System 5

  20. 20. Commuter Rail to DMU Light Rail Integrate with regional heavy rail (Coaster and Amtrak). We believe that, with the installation of Positive Train Control on the LOSSAN corridor, the region has an opportunity, working with our Congressional delegation and the Federal Railroad Administration, to pursue a pilot program for exploring the use of light DMUs on that corridor. Alternatively, we should explore heavy DMUs. © 2013 by The Mission Group FAST Plan: How to Create a World Class Transit System 20
