The proposed Project is located in Alameda County between the Capitol Corridor Oakland Coliseum Station to the north and Newark Junction to the south. Currently, CCJPA operates Capitol Corridor passenger rail service along the Niles Subdivision (owned by Union Pacific Railroad) between Oakland and Fremont/Newark. Key components of the proposed South Bay Connect Project include:
• Relocation of Capitol Corridor passenger rail operations to the Coast Subdivision and the facilitate the relocation of freight rail operations to the Niles and Oakland Subdivisions between Oakland and Fremont/Newark to create operational improvements for both services;
• Upgrades to the Coast Subdivision to Federal Rail Administration Class 5 track standards to accommodate passenger rail service;
• Improvements on the Niles and Oakland Subdivisions, including connections between the two lines at Industrial and Shinn to allow for more efficient freight movements; and
• Construction of a new passenger rail station at the existing Ardenwood Park & Ride that connects rail service with express buses, private shuttles, and the surrounding bicycle and pedestrian network.
