5 Big Moves #2: Transit Leap


Transit Leap could create a complete network of fast, high–capacity, high–frequency transit services that connect major residential areas with employment centers and attractions throughout the San Diego region. Transit Leap services could connect to supporting Flexible Fleets in Mobility Hubs. New high–speed services — covering longer distances with limited stops— may be separated from vehicle traffic with bridges, tunnels, or dedicated lanes. Improvements to existing transit services—such as the Trolley, COASTER, SPRINTER, and Rapid—may include additional rail tracks, more frequent service, dedicated transit lanes, and traffic signal priority to keep transit moving quickly.

Transit Leap will provide practical transit choices that are viable alternatives to driving for most trips along Complete Corridor highways.

Projects that fall within Transit Leap will be evaluated against SANDAG 2021 Regional Transportation Plan goals and objectives.
