Governor Davis’ Transportation Congestion Relief Plan will include projects that will bring relief to some of the most heavily congested areas in America. These include: An extension of San Francisco’s Muni line underground all the way to Chinatown. Today, Muni buses serve 90,000 riders a day along this route and it is one of the most congested in the city; An extension of the BART system from the existing Fremont Station into downtown San Jose to relieve traffic congestion between Alameda and Santa Clara counties; An extension of 13.7 miles of Blue Line light rail from Los Angeles to Pasadena; Acquisition of a high-speed ferryboat for a new off-coast service between San Diego and Oceanside to help relieve daily traffic and rail congestion; onversions of the Regional Transit Bus Fleet to 100 percent clean burning natural gas in the Central Valley. Implementation would allow the region to meet federal Clean Air Act requirements and avoid the possibility of losing federal funds for transportation projects; An extension in service to an additional 5 miles from Meadowview Road to Calvine Road and Auberry Drive in South Sacramento. The project will serve an estimated 15,000 riders per day.
