Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project Registration

SANDAG is preparing for the Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project, which will extend Trolley service from Old Town to the University City community, expand transportation capacity, and reduce congestion. The estimated project cost is approximately $1.7 billion (excluding finance charges); approximately $150 million will be available for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and small business contract opportunities.

Businesses interested in contracting opportunities with SANDAG on the Mid-Coast Project must register in our Mid-Coast Project database.
