Work Begins On $113 Million South Bay Transit Project

Construction has begun on the $113 million South Bay Rapid project, a 21-mile regional bus service that will run between the Otay Mesa Port of Entry and downtown San Diego. The service is expected to begin in 2018, operated by San Diego Metropolitan Transit System (MTS).

A statement from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) said regional government and economic development officials were scheduled to hold a groundbreaking ceremony in Chula Vista on Feb. 17.

Officials said the South Bay Rapid at completion will connect residents in San Diego and South County to regional employment and activity centers. It will run along the South Bay Expressway in eastern Chula Vista, Interstate 805 and state Route 94.

According to SANDAG, the two-phase project includes building a transit line between the Otay Mesa Port of Entry and downtown San Diego, including seven stations, access ramps, arterial transit-only lanes, transit signal improvements and enhanced customer amenities in the first phase.

The second phase will include new freeway-level stations, Park & Ride lots and other improvements geared toward increasing public access and reducing travel times for most passengers.
