Project covers corridor from Merced and Stockton to San Jose; wide diversity of urban and rural land uses.

Document Description
The purpose of the ACEfoward Project/Program is to implement a series of projects to reduce travel time, increase service reliability and frequency, improve passenger facilities and extend the reach of the ACE rail system to downtown Modesto and Merced. The need for ACEfoward Project/Program is for enhanced intercity and commuter rail service in the northern San Joaquin Valley in the ACE corridor connecting the southern Bay Area with the Tri-Valley and the San Joaquin Valley. This need stems from the social and economic ties and travel demand that bind together the Northern San Joaquin Valley, the Tri-Valley and the Southern Bay Area, as well as the high levels of existing traffic and future anticipated growth, travel demand, and congestion that will cause environmental degradation and higher safety risks if not addressed. This need cannot be met by the existing ACE service or infrastructure which has significant operating limitations: including limited-capacity single track for much of the route, slow average operating speeds, service limitations and lack of existing service to Modesto and Merced.
