Council Considers Light Rail Options

January 27, 1998|JEFF KASS

From the MainPlace/Santa Ana mall to the Artists Village, the City Council is looking at possible routes for a light rail system.

The city still must wait for an extensive study to be completed, but a majority of council members expressed a preference for a light rail system that would boost the city by stopping at major business and tourist areas.

Main Street, already a major north-south thoroughfare, was the principal choice. In addition to the mall and Artists Village, a Main Street train would pass by the Bowers Museum and proposed Discovery Science Center.

Such a route would be close to the county government center and also might travel west to stop at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa.
