  • Station Design

    Developed 5 Alternative Station Designs with Variations to Remain within Station Budget

    Station Design was Selected for Further Development

    Same Station Concept as Selected by Committee

    Primary Changes Include:

    Steel Canopy Modified to Off-the-Shelf Aluminum Truss System

    Canopy Reduced in Length by Five Feet from 3210 to 2710

  • Revised Station Layout

  • Vehicle Features

    35 feet long - Community compatible

    Large windows - Bright and safe

    Low floor / multiple doors / foldover wheelchair ramp

    Accessible, quick boarding

    Gasoline hybrid propulsion system - Quieter, cleaner, lower emissions

    Super Loop branding - Distinctive, but within MTS family

  • SuperLoop Status Design is 100% complete

    Vehicle production underway, all 12 vehicles, delivered by April 2009

    Project to be federalized (Fed approved Cat. Exclusion)

    Right of way pending federalization

    Preparing operating plan and agreements with MTS, UCSD, City Of San Diego

    Construction anticipated Winter 2009

    Completed in Fall 2010

  • SuperLoop Status

    Responds to existing ridership demand

    Super Loop vehicles in revenue service

    Began service in June 2009

    Temporary stops and signage during construction

    Shortened loop route to maintain headways

    Implementing public awareness program

    Nearing overall ridership forecasts!

  • TSP AnalysisTSP Analysis

    Delay using a weighted average of TSP and non-TSP occurrences

    10 second max green extension

    With TSP, reduced delay due to extended green on major street

  • Parking ImpactsParking Impacts

    Narrow the median

    Convert parallel to angle parking on Lincoln, Polk, and Centre

    Retain as much angle parking on Park Boulevard as possible

    Net loss of 9-13 spaces

  • Expected ResultsExpected Results

    Travel time savings of 25% End-to-end travel time of 38 minutes Frequency Improvements Up to 15,000 riders on opening day

    Impacts: 2-4 parking spaces per station on El Cajon Blvd. 9-13 spaces on Park Boulevard Minor traffic delays on El Cajon Blvd when bus in station

    Transit Improvements:

    Other Benefits: Traffic signal synchronization New buses New platforms, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings,

    shelters, and landscaping Improved maintenance
