SANDAG and Caltrans Seek Input on Plans for Central Mobility Hub and Transportation Connections to Airport
SANDAG and Caltrans have launched a public survey to assist in the development of the Central Mobility Hub and Connections Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan.
The plan will analyze data and public input to identify innovative transportation solutions that could transform the way people and goods move around the San Diego International Airport area and surrounding communities, focusing on the proposed development of the Central Mobility Hub.
Public input is essential to this process and will help inform the plan. SANDAG and Caltrans encourage the public to complete the survey by visiting the project’s virtual engagement site: sandag.mysocialpinpoint.com/cmhandconnections.
The survey will remain open through Friday, May 14. Feedback also can be provided through an interactive map and comment form on the virtual engagement site, which is available in English and Spanish.
The Central Mobility Hub and Connections Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plan is one of five priority corridor plans being developed by SANDAG and Caltrans. The study area for this plan includes the Midway District, Old Town San Diego, Downtown San Diego, and parts of Point Loma. The plan is expected to be completed this summer.
The plan will help inform the Central Mobility Hub project, a SANDAG priority project and key element of the 2021 Regional Plan. The Central Mobility Hub is envisioned to be a multimodal transportation center that would connect current and future public transportation options and provide a much-needed direct transit connection to San Diego International Airport. The Central Mobility Hub also could enhance the surrounding community and travel experience by providing an array of amenities, public gathering areas, and mobility services.
About Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plans
Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plans are data-driven plans being developed by SANDAG and Caltrans that offer solutions to reduce congestion, support climate action initiatives, generate transportation choices, and increase access for residents, commuters, visitors, and goods movement. The plans include all travel modes in a defined corridor – roadways, public transit, bikeways, and more – and will incorporate the 5 Big Moves that shape SANDAG’s 2021 Regional Plan . Comprehensive Multimodal Corridor Plans are recommended by the California Transportation Commission to apply for certain state and federal funds, including Senate Bill 1 funding which can be leveraged to support regional transportation projects.
Caltrans District 11 serves one of the most geographically and culturally diverse areas in the country and includes San Diego and Imperial counties. It spans the entire California-Mexico Border from the Pacific coast to Arizona and reaches north from the international border to Orange and Riverside counties.
