The True Potential of Dumbarton Rail

A new rail service connecting the Peninsula and the East Bay along the Dumbarton Rail corridor is being planned by Crossbay Transit Partners, an alliance among Facebook, the Plenary Group, and SamTrans.

While this could be a truly transformational project if planned as part of a seamlessly integrated future transit network, the Bay Area’s lack of strong public sector leadership in regional transportation means will make that difficult to achieve.

The project is a perfect illustration of why the Bay Area needs a clear lead regional authority to oversee the and integrate the region’s public transportation system.
