  • Now, we’re going to take a moment to walk through Kern COG most recent studies: the key findings and recommendations for the 2014 RTP
  • The current TPA only includes the Amtrak stations with a total coverage of 1.57 square miles and household population of 5,628 within the TPA. In October 2012, the GET Short Term Transit Plan will implement their 2012 plan which will increase the TPA coverage to 26.40 square miles and include a household population of 127,022 within the TPA.

    • 1. Overview of Recent Studies
    • 2. Overview of Recent Studies• Kern County Bicycle Master Plan• Long Range Transit Plan• High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)/ Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study• Commuter Rail Feasibility Study• Kern County Goods Movement Strategy• Short Haul Rail Freight Study
    • 3. Kern County Bicycle Master Plan• Goal – Assess existing bicycle facilities – Develop a plan for new bicycle amenities – Provide recommendations for complete streets
    • 4. Kern County Bicycle Master Plan • 664 miles of new bikeways including: – 30 miles of Class I bike paths – 297 miles of Class II bikes lanes – 46.6 miles of Class III bike routes – 186 miles for Class III bike routes on State routes
    • 5. Long Range Transit Plan• Goal – Document the relationship between: • Population growth • Employment growth • Transit ridership demand • Current operations – Improve Customer Service – Improve Cost- effectiveness
    • 6. Expanding Access to High Quality Transit
    • 7. GET Long Range Transit Plan• Short-Term Recommendations – New Transit Center at CSUB – Increased service to CSUB and BC – Faster cross-town trips: Express routes, “Rapid” routes, More direct routes• Mid- Long- Term Recommendations – Accommodate projected growth – Phase out downtown and southwest Transit Centers – Convert “Rapid” routes to full Bus Rapid Transit – Introduce “enhanced” KRT intercity express bus routes
    • 8. 2005 Transit Priority Areas – 5,600 Households
    • 9. 2012 Transit Priority Areas – 127,600 Households
    • 10. 2035 Transit Priority Areas – 415,000 Households
    • 11. EmployerSubsidized Transit• 19,000 employee trips per year• 1.4 Million Miles Less Travel Annually
    • 12. Kern Regional Transit (KRT)Service Analysis• Goal – Determine whether KRT might be able to take advantage of the GET changes to: • Improve service for its own customers • Reduce operating costs
    • 13. Kern Regional Transit (KRT)Service Analysis
    • 14. Draft High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)/Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study• Goal – Examine the long-range feasibility of implementing HOV lanes and/or BRT services – Assess the performance, benefits, and potential impacts of HOV and BRT
    • 15. High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV)/Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Study• Short- and Mid-Term Recommendations – Improve rapid bus with: • Traffic signal priority systems and queue jump lanes • Exclusive HOV and bus lanes – Introduce express bus service along SR 178/24th Street/Rosedale Highway – Construct truck climbing lanes eastbound SR-58 – Add express bus services – Introduce ramp meters at identified interchanges – Designate new peak period-only HOV lane
    • 16. One Approach:Phased Light Rail Today Bus Rapid Transit Long Range Light Rail
    • 17. Centers/Corridors Concept
    • 18. Commuter Rail Feasibility Study• Goal – Examine a set of alternatives for providing commuter rail service within: • Bakersfield metropolitan area • Surrounding portions of Kern County • Eastern region of the county – Identify corridors that may be feasible for future service and potential station locations
    • 19. Commuter Rail Rosamond Feasibility Study Expansion of MetroLink to Rosamond Added stops to Amtrak Northwest of Bakersfield Possible Future South Valley Commuter RailLink to Study: Delanohttp://www.kerncog.org/docs/studies/KernCOG_Commuter_Rail_Draft_R Wascoeport_20120720.pdf Bakersfield
    • 20. Short-Haul Rail Freight Study Phase II • Goal – Expand on Short- Haul Rail Freight Study Phase I – Focus on San Joaquin Valley Rail (SJVR) operations – Profile existing traffic base based on shipper comments – Forecast growth in traffic base 10 years into the future
    • 21. Short-Haul Rail Freight Study Phase II• Recommendations – Proactively identify rail quality service issues & solutions – Engage KEDC, SJVR and communities to craft solutions to attract rail-dependent industries. – Develop multi-use facilities along Buttonwillow and Oil City corridors – Explore rail intermodal options – Explore potential future uses for the southern portion of the Arvin Subdivision
    • 22. Kern County GoodsMovement Strategy 21%• Goal Survey – Use data from SR-58, SR- 99/I-5, SR-223, 166, 119, 46 29% Locations & 65 Origins & Destinations Studies to inform future project development activities – Propose future truck- related capital improvements through 9% 2035 – Determine the impact of current and future transportation projects on goods movement
    • 23. Kern County GoodsMovement Strategy• Stakeholder Project Ranking – SR-58 – From I-5/SR-58 to Allen Road – add through lanes – SR-58 – From Union Avenue to Cottonwood Road – add through lanes• Other Project Ranking – (not a complete list) — Southbound SR-99 off-ramp – Panama Lane to Wible Road - add auxiliary lane — SR-119 – From Golf Course Road to aqueduct – add through lanes — SR-178 – From SR-184 to Rancheria Road – add through lanes
