MTS endorses plan for Mid-Coast trolley between Old Town, University City

The Metropolitan Transit System board Thursday endorsed a route for the proposed Mid-Coast extension of the San Diego Trolley from Old Town to University City.

The board voted unanimously to back the 11-mile “Light Rail Transit Alternative 1″ as the preferred route among three analyzed by the San Diego Association of Governments, according to MTS spokesman Rob Schupp.

The path would take the trolley from the Old Town Transit Center along the east side of Interstate 5, to UC San Diego, then east along Voight Drive and Genesee Avenue to University Town Centre.

Eight new stations would be located at Tecolote Road, Clairemont Drive, Balboa Avenue, Nobel Drive, the west and east sides of UCSD, Executive Drive and UTC Transit Center, according to SANDAG.

SANDAG, the agency handling the planning for the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project, is now holding a series of scoping meetings on the proposed trolley extension. MTS runs the San Diego Trolley.

Schupp said Thursday’s vote was an opportunity for the MTS board to “weigh in” on which route it believes would generate the greatest ridership and best serve the community.
