    Re: Mass Transit 2 the Disneyland Resort

    I like the Cucamonga Creek Channel Idea.
    I'm not sure about that jut northeastward in blue on that map, though. Who up there wants the Gold Line to go there? Or, who DOESN'T want the 8th street route to keep going straight east to the Creek?
    Also, they have Metrolink's Right of Way just north of 8th street. Piggyback that ROW, and done.
    What Montclair, Upland, Ontario, and Ontario Airport need to do is to create an efficient system of getting to each others transit centers. Or, failing that, try to build one for the whole area and push trains, buses, and light rail to it. I like the former more, since more is already built. But if the latter is chosen, there is a big empty lot just north of where the Ontario Convention Center is, north of The 10 and the airport on Vineyard Street (former site of Ontario Speedway??). All current transit centers can feed this one spot with lots of parking, End of Gold Line, dedicated loop train to and from airport, etc.
    Then, they should extend the runways all the way to The 15.

    As California debates plans for its high-speed rail line, Treehugger hops on a train between Guangzhou and Wuhan in China, a line that travels 620 miles in three hours.
    Check out the video of what it feels like to take a high-speed trip.

    Google Maps is your friend.
    I compare Google Maps to that map in your link. I also try to find rights of way and utlra-wide streets.
    I've never been there, either.

    Will they also provide the ridership required to make it profitable?

    Maybe they're sending 50 million Chinese to Fresno to commute to jobs in LA and SF.

    Caltrain rail-tunnel project runs short of needed funds

    To keep the terminal project moving, the Transbay Joint Authority board has decided to build the transit hub first and bring Caltrain downtown later.

    The dilapidated bus station is scheduled to begin its transformation in 2008 into a transit jewel surrounded by 3,400 new homes, office and retail space, parks and open space and a 1,000-foot tower, the tallest in the Bay Area.

    "The choice is obvious," said Randy Rentschler, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. "They build the terminal and prepare for Caltrain."

    The other alternative is building the expensive Caltrain tunnel at the expense of the whole terminal, Rentschler said.

    Mass Transit Agencies Consider Selling Naming Rights to Stations [SmartPlanet]

    There’s already a subway stop in Brooklyn named after Barclay’s Bank and Philly has an AT&T stop on its subway system (that brought in $3 million). Chicago and Miami are also trying to rake in some dough by selling naming rights, with the Florida city charging up to $40,000 for corporate sponsorship of each of their Downtown skyway stations. "Some observers worry that rebranding transit stops may put the systems out of touch with the communities they serve, and even cause confusion among riders," reads the SmartPlanet piece. But money talks. Metro tells us they are considering naming rights for their stations--a report on the matter will be presented at a March board meeting.
    I know we could use the cash but it sounds very confusing to have an AT&T stop on the subway.

    Bad enough using colors instead of numbers for the lines.
