Help plan for the future of the Altamont Corridor

TRACY - Plans are in the works to redesign and modernize the existing ACE train. Please join us to learn more about the Altamont Corridor Rail Project, which will create an exciting new commuter and intercity train service connecting the Central Valley, Tri-Valley and Silicon Valley. This faster electric train could be a real alternative to driving on the 580/205 freeways! 

At these upcoming public meetings, a variety of options for new routes and station sites and the results of the preliminary alternatives analysis will be presented for community feedback. Your input is vitally important, as we are selecting the range of alternative routes and station locations that will go forward for detailed consideration in the environmental impact analysis. We want to hear your thoughts!

If you are unable to attend a meeting, you can participate in the online webinar or share your comments through the website.

Project Overview
The Altamont Corridor Rail Project will transform the existing Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) into a dramatically streamlined system with faster intercity service and better regional connections. The future Altamont Corridor Express could speed commuters from the Central Valley to the Silicon Valley faster than ever before—cutting the current 2 hour plus trip down to about 1 hour. Station stops may include Stockton, Lathrop/Manteca, Modesto, Tracy, Livermore / Pleasanton, Fremont / Union City, Milpitas, Santa Clara, and San Jose. The goal is to run state-of-the-art electric trains that will be more comfortable, faster, cleaner and greener. The system will work for our communities on many levels, allowing quick trips between cities, commuter access to job centers, and easy connections to local transit, BART, and California’s planned High-Speed Train network.

To enhance flexibility and convenience for riders, the corridor will be designed as a dual-purpose system, which could accommodate both ACE and California High-Speed Trains. High-Speed Trains would run at reduced speeds through the Altamont Corridor, then link directly into the California High-Speed Train mainline system in Stockton, Modesto and San Jose. This design would allow future passengers to ride a train from Sacramento to San Jose, for example, or from Livermore to Los Angeles.
