    Elevated Peoplemover System from the Pond/Rail Station to Disneyland

    The Starbucks news seemed to grab all the attention in Al's last update, however, I found the statement below about a "Peoplemover" used to shuttle people from a new high speed rail station to Disneyland to be the really exciting news.

    Ed successfully helped patch up the relationship between Disneyland and the local community, and now George is going to need to shepherd that relationship through some important projects ahead like the big California High Speed Rail station in Anaheim, the plans for an elevated peoplemover system from that new station to Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center
    A Peoplemover system which also stops at the new parking structure across from Garden Walk (or perhaps even at Garden Walk) would be a great way to shuttle crowds in a more environmentally friendly way than buses. Additionally a high speed rail project could help cut down on parking congestion by encouraging more guests to take the train instead of driving.

    I wouldn't be surprised if such a high speed rail project also linked the Disney Cruise Line terminal with Disneyland as well.

    What are your thoughts folks?

    The California High Speed Rail will not align with San Pedro or Long Beach.

    But other than that, great post Dusty!

    Re: Elevated Peoplemover System from the Pond/Rail Station to Disneyland

    If, and that is a BIG if, the pipe dream of a high speed rail system ever actually gets built, it might be a nice idea.

    But I have a feeling that my teenage kids will have grandkids before the high speed rail ever makes it into sunny California.

    If at all...

    Re: Elevated Peoplemover System from the Pond/Rail Station to Disneyland

    A Peoplemover or Personal Rapid Transit system running from Disneyland to ARTIC would work wonderfully, and could be built and running in only a few years if they got moving and got cooperation from the other stakeholders. (City of Anaheim, Orange County, and the residents along the path.)

    But the High Speed Rail project isn't going to be built for a good 15 to 20 years, if at all. If they haven't noticed yet, the state is well beyond broke and looks to be that way for a while.

    If they can get you from ARTIC to the Long Beach Cruise Line Terminal on an Amtrak or Metrolink train, and then a more direct connection via a dedicated regional light-rail system, that's a far more realistic and therefore better reason to build the connector. Once there is a proven demand, then they can build a more direct light-rail trolley connector that goes right to the dock.

    That's the Achilles Heel of public transit - It *almost* gets you from where you are to to where you need to go, and *almost* at the times you wanted to get there and back.

    It's that last mile at either end of your trip or the mile gap in the middle, or the schedule that doesn't run early enough or late enough, that are the bane of leaving your car at home and taking public transit. Taking a taxi or a shuttle-bus to cross that gap blows all the savings.

    I would love to see a real world application for the People Mover I question how long of a trip that would be to go from station to park!

    Re: Elevated Peoplemover System from the Pond/Rail Station to Disneyland

    While the high speed rail could be a good idea in a perfect world I just don't see it happening. We can't even get BART into San Jose from Fremont for christ's sake. How the heck is a state of the art bullet train from San Jose to LA EVER going realistically happen? Besides, a plane ticket to LA from the Bay Area is dirt cheap and faster than this new train would be anyway.

    I think they should worry about putting something on the people mover track they already have as opposed to spending money designing a system for a train that may never exist.

    Actually when you factor in security checks and preboarding, plus getting in and out of the airports on both sides, San Jose to Anaheim might be faster on HSR than flying.

    That's a big rigmarole path to go .. since the Amtrak/Metrolink track makes a direct path into downtown LA (kinda the same route for the Santa Ana 5 freeway) .. then .. passengers would then have to board the RED line subway - get off at the 7th Street/Figueroa station .. and THEN .. connect to the BLUE line which will take you through some "lovely" neighborhoods south to Long Beach.

    Not exactly feasible.

    A line would have to be built that would run due west .. from Anaheim .. straight into Long Beach.

    This is no CalTrain, don't think for a second that these won't exist on this new high speed rail line. I would imagine getting through the station will be very similar to what you go through in the airports. Besides, I never get held up in security lines when I fly to places like LA and Vegas anymore, I can go from the drop off to the gate in 20 minutes easy.

    Why would I take a train when I can have a 110hp 600cc motor screaming between my legs??

    Gas to LA on my Kawi is less than $20.
