Pacific Electric Right of Way/ West Santa Ana Branch Corridor Alternative Analysis

The Southern California Association of Governments is hosting community workshops regarding the West Santa Ana Branch and PE ROW.

The Pacific Electric Right-of-Way (PE ROW) / West Santa Ana Branch Corridor is a railroad right-of-way that extends for approximately 20 miles between the City of Paramount in Los Angeles County and the City of Santa Ana in Orange County. The railroad corridor was once part of the Pacific Electric Railway, or Red Car, system that provided mass transit service to Southern California from 1901 to 1961. Much of the corridor has been abandoned and is not currently used for mass transit purposes.

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), in coordination with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA), is conducting a transit Alternatives Analysis (AA) for the PE ROW / West Santa Ana Branch. The AA will examine potential transit service along the corridor that can provide additional travel options between Los Angeles and Orange Counties, reduce congestion on nearby streets and freeways, and provide adjacent communities with access to the regional transit network.

The workshops will be held at the following sites on the following days:

  • GARDEN GROVE, CA Tuesday, June 15, 2010 6:30-8:30 pm
    Garden Grove Community Center 11300 Stanford Avenue
