Consultant to boost rail service

June 10, 2008

The region's transportation agencies have hired a consultant to help coordinate and improve rail service.

For years, rail advocates have pushed for more service between Los Angeles and San Diego, but coordinating Amtrak, Coaster and Metrolink in addition to two freight carriers has been complex.

An assessment by San Francisco-based Wilbur Smith Associates will cost about $349,300 and be completed in 10 months.

The assessment is a joint project with the Orange County Transportation Authority acting as project manager. OCTA, Metrolink, Caltrans, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, North County Transit District and the San Diego Assn. of Governments will share costs.
