If San Francisco were an hour closer to Davis, how would that change life in Davis? We might find out in the next 10 to 20 years, thanks to a program that is starting to take shape now. Link21, sponsored by BART and the Capitol Corridor, would add a second transbay rail crossing as part of an ambitious, expensive plan to extend rail connections throughout the 21-county megaregion that stretches from Yuba County to Monterey. The program’s components include faster Capitol Corridor train service between Sacramento and San Francisco, among other changes. People throughout the region will have a chance to shape what gets built, and doing it all fairly is one of the major goals.
Today we talk with Camille Tsao, Capitol Corridor project manager for Link21, about what’s in the works.
