UNMET TRANSIT NEEDS TESTIMONY Ms. Love reminded the members that an unmet needs hearing is held annually in Palo Verde Valley. She stated that in western Riverside County and. Coachella Valley all available transit funding is spent on transit services; however, in Palo Verde Valley as much as possible is spent on transit in order to maintain a certain level of farebox productivity but the excess is then reallocated to streets and roads. State law requires that before funding is reallocated for streets and roads purposes, a public hearing must be held to determine what is reasonable in transit services. This year, Jim Collins, Citizens' Advisory Committee/Social Services Transportation Advisory Council member sat on the hearing board along with three Commissioners. Five people attended and spoke at the hearing, three of whom spoke about transit needs. She outlined the staff recommendation, reviewed the "Unmet Transit Needs" and "Reasonable to Meet" definitions and asked the members to reaffirm the definitions. M/S/C IPugaNenerable) to reaffirm the Commission's definition of "Unmet Transit Needs" and "Reasonable to Meet" standards; make a finding that based upon a review of the requests for services received through the "Unmet Transit Needs Hearing" process, review of existing services and proposed improvements to the available services, that there are no unmet transit needs which can be reasonably met in the Palo Verde Valley and forward to the Plans and Programs Committee for review.

Respectfully submitted, isou Tanya Love Program Manager AGENDA ITEM 6 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: August 10, 2005 TO: Citizens' Advisory Committee/Social Services Advisory Council Transportation FROM: Cathy Bechtel, Division Head, Planning 1THROUGH: Eric Haley, Executive Director 1 SUBJECT: i Community and Environmental Transportation Process Acceptability !STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the CAC/SSTAC to: 1) Receive and file the report on the Community and Environmental Transportation Acceptability Process. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: CETAP stands for " Community and Environmental Transportation Acceptability Process." It is the part of the Riverside County Integrated Project that is looking at whereto locate possible major new multimodal transportation facilities to serve the current and future transportation needs of Western Riverside County. The essence of the Riverside County Integrated Project (RCIP) is in the integration ;of land use, transportation and conservation planning, and implementation, to !develop a consensus for the future development of Riverside County. The integrated project is composed of four integrated elements: a Multi -Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), a County General Plan, a Special Area •Management Plan (SAMP) and four new transportation corridors under the !Community and Environmental Transportation Acceptability Process. CETAP 'identifies four future transportation corridors in the western part of the county; two internal corridors, two external — one each to San Bernardino and Orange Counties. Cathy Bechtel will provide the Citizens' Advisory Committee/Social Services Transportation Advisory Council an overview of the four corridors. GENDA ITEM 7 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION !DATE: August 10, 2005 TO: Citizens' Advisory Committee/Social Services Transportation Advisory Council FROM: Stephanie Wiggins, Rail Department Manager THROUGH: Anne Mayer, Division Head, Programming and Administration SUBJECT: Review of Evaluation Criteria for Update of Alameda Corridor East (ACE) Trade Corridor Rail Crossing Grade Separation Priority List STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the CAC/SSTAC to: 1) Receive and file the report on the evaluation criteria for update of Alameda Corridor East (ACE) Trade Corridor Rail Crossing Grade Separation Priority List. iBA CKGRO UND INFORMATION: ;The Alameda Corridor is a 20-mile freight line that connects the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles to intermodal facilities near downtown Los Angeles and generally parallels Alameda Street along most of its route. Throughout the corridor, the rail line is separated from surface street traffic, so the high volume of freight ;trains will not delay street traffic. !After leaving the Alameda ;Corridor, the majority of trains turn east, destined to intermodal terminals in the Inland Empire or Ito other parts of the country. This area is known as the Alameda Corridor East (ACE) Trade Corridor. The rail lines of the ACE Trade Corridor pass through the San Gabriel Valley, Orange County, San Bernardino County, and Riverside County. At its March 2001 meeting, the Commission approved the evaluation criteria for the Riverside County ACE Trade Corridor Rail Crossing Grade Separation Priority List (see Attachment 1). The evaluation criteria are based on seven factors: • Existing Vehicle Delay (1999) - weighted 20% • Future Vehicle Delay (2020) - weighted 20% • Accident Reduction (Safety) - weighted 20% • Distance from other grade separations • Local Ranking • Emission Reduction; and • Noise Reduction (Impact on nearby residential areas). :From the evaluation of these factors, the rail crossings are separated into five ;groups to indicate their relative priority for improvement. Those included in Groups #1 and #2 are considered to be the high priority crossings for improvement. (See lAttachment). Purpose for 2005 Update Since March 2001, projected freight growth and population growth have increased. In addition, RCTC Plans and Programs Committee members have expressed a desire to update the data used in the criteria. The weighting of safety and delay provides consistency when comparing the grade separation needs of Riverside County with those of the rest of the Southern California basin. The RCTC Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) reviewed the proposed evaluation criteria. The TAC expressed a desire for the list to be flexible in relation to the needs of the local jurisdiction and for the evaluation of delay criteria to include in its calculation the delay experienced at intersections within 200-300 feet of the grade crossing or a similar methodology practiced by federal/state agencies for certain crossings such as Van Buren and Jurupa. In addition, the current and updated list allows for flexibility by including the local jurisdiction ranking as a criteria for evaluation and providing for final consideration at the policy level by the full Commission. The 2001 list reflects this through the Commission's action to upgrade the Streeter Avenue crossing at the request of the City of Riverside. In March 2005, the .Commission approved the evaluation criteria and directed staff to develop an updated priority list using the most current data available. 2001 Approved Evaluation Criteria 2005 Approved Evaluation Criteria Criteria Weight Criteria Weight ;Existing Vehicle Delay (1999) 20% Existing Vehicle Delay (2004) 20% Future Vehicle Delay (2020) 20% Future Vehicle Delay (2030) 20% !Accident Reduction (Safety) 20% Accident Reduction (Safety) 20% Distance from other Grade Separations 10% Distance from other Grade Separations 10% Local Ranking 10% Local Ranking 10% !Emission Reduction 10% Emission Reduction 10% !Noise Reduction 10% Noise Reduction 10% TOTAL 100% TOTAL 100% !Attachment: March 2001 RCTC ACE Trade Corridor Grade Crossing Priority List RCTC ACE Trade Corridor Grade Crossing Separation Need List, March 2001 Rail Line Cross Street Jurisdiction Overall Weighted Score* Priority Group BNSF & UP (SB SUB) 3rd St Riverside 4260 1 BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Iowa Av Riverside 3880 1 UP (YUMA MAIN) Avenue 48/ Dillon Rd Indio/Coachella 3775 1 BNSF (SB SUB) McKinley St Corona 3600 1 BNSF (SB SUB) Magnolia Av Riverside County 3600 1 UP (YUMA MAIN) Avenue 50 Coachella 3500 1 (Completed 1/04) BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Chicago Av Riverside 3440 1 UP (LA SUB) Streeter Av Riverside 3000 1*" BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Spruce St Riverside 3180 1 UP (LA SUB) Magnolia Av Riverside 3100 1 UP (LA SUB) Riverside Av Riverside 3060 2 BNSF (SB SUB) Mary St Riverside 3320 2** BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Columbia Av Riverside 2940 2 BNSF & UP (RIV) Cridge St Riverside 2820 2 UP (YUMA MAIN) Avenue 52 Coachella 2750 2 BNSF (SB SUB) Auto Center Dr Corona 2738 2 UP (YUMA MAIN) Sunset Av Banning 2675 2 UP (LA SUB) Jurupa Rd Riverside County 2650 2 BNSF (SB SUB) Washington St Riverside 2520 2 BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Center St Riverside County 2500 3 UP (YUMA MAIN) Hargrave St Banning 2500 3 UP (LA SUB) Brockton Av Riverside 2480 3 BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Kansas Av Riverside 2480 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Tyler St Riverside 2460 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Adams St Riverside 2400 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Madison St Riverside 2240 3 UP (YUMA MAIN) San Timoteo Canyon Rd Calimesa 2225 3 UP (YUMA MAIN) California Av Beaumont 2200 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Smith Av Corona 2113 3 BNSF & UP (SB SUB) 7th St Riverside 2000 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Railroad St Corona 1975 3 UP (YUMA MAIN) Broadway Riverside County 1950 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Pierce St Riverside 1885 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Buchanan St Riverside 1880 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Joy St Corona 1850 3 UP (LA SUB) Palm Av Riverside 1820 3 BNSF (SB SUB) Jackson St Riverside 1755 4 UP (YUMA MAIN) 22nd St Banning 1750 4 BNSF (SB SUB) Harrison St Riverside 1740 4 BNSF (SB SUB) Jefferson St Riverside 1740 4 BNSF (SB SUB) Cota St Corona 1713 4 UP (LA SUB) Bellgrave Av Riverside County 1700 4 UP (LA SUB) Clay St Riverside County 1700 4 UP (YUMA MAIN) Pennsylvania Av Beaumont 1667 4 UP (YUMA MAIN) San Gorgonio Av Banning 1625 4 UP (YUMA MAIN) Airport Road Riverside County 1450 4 BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Main St Riverside County 1350 4 BNSF (SB SUB) Gibson St Riverside 1220 4 BNSF (SB SUB) Jane St Riverside 1200 4 UP (YUMA MAIN) Viele Av Beaumont 1133 4 BNSF (SB SUB) Sheridan St Corona 1125 4 UP (LA SUB) Panorama Rd Riverside 1060 4 BNSF & UP (SB SUB) Pa[myrita Av Riverside 1020 4 UP (LA SUB) Mountain View Av Riverside 1000 5 UP (YUMA MAIN) Avenue 66 Riverside County 950 5 UP (YUMA MAIN) Avenue 54 Coachella 825 5 UP (YUMA MAIN) Apache Trail Riverside County 800 5 BNSF (SB SUB) Radio Rd Corona 563 5 ** = Per RCTC March 2001 versirlu County r n sporxruwu Commission AGENDA ITEM 8 RIVERSIDE COUNTY TRANSPORTATION COMMISSION DATE: August 10, 2005 TO: Citizens' Advisory Committee/Social Services Transportation Advisory Council FROM: Tanya Love, Program Manager THROUGH: Cathy Bechtel, Division Head, Planning SUBJECT: Transit Marketing Strategies: New and Innovative Marketing Ideas STAFF RECOMMENDATION: This item is for the CAC/SSTAC to: 1) Receive and file the presentation on transit marketing strategies: new and innovative marketing ideas. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: At the May 2005, Citizens' Advisory Committee/Social Services Transportation Advisory Council (CAC/SSTAC), a request was made for the Riverside County transit operators to make a presentation on new and innovative marketing strategies. It is anticipated that at the CAC/SSTAC meeting, presentations on marketing activities will be made by staff from Metrolink, Pass Transit System and the Riverside Transit Agency (RTA). Following is a brief summary of the presentations: 1) Metrolink: A representative of the Metrolink Marketing Department will provide an overview of the Metrolink program. Metrolink's marketing effort is tailored to the direct target market for potential riders. Based on research from a number of onboard surveys, potential user surveys, and focus groups, Metrolink tries to maximize its limited marketing budget to reach its target market. Outlined below are the goals of the 2006 Metrolink Marketing Plan that may be addressed in their presentation: • Expand employer outreach • Build customer loyalty/retention • Cultivate Hispanic ridership • Reach new residential targets • Increase revenue • Promote connectivity • Support member agencies 2) Pass Transit System: The Pass Transit System is a cooperative effort between the Banning Municipal Transit System and the Beaumont Municipal Transit Agency. Pass Transit serves the communities of Cherry Valley, Beaumont, Banning and Cabazon. It also serves the commercial area of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians Reservation. In 2000, the Riverside County Transportation Commission funded the Pass Area Transit study. The study revealed that residents who did not ride transit were not aware of the availability of transit service in the Pass Area. In order to build awareness, a bold new graphic design "branding" was created for the transit system that included buses and dial -a -ride vehicles, bus stop signs and a ride guide. Staff from Pass Transit will present a power point display on the Pass Transit System, current marketing efforts, as well as planned marketing activities for future outreach. 3) Riverside Transit Agency: RTA's marketing outreach program is comprised of a multitude of activities including promotions, advertising, public information, press relations, community relations and market research. At RTA, continually developing and applying new innovations in marketing are critical in attracting and retaining bus riders and enhancing the image of the agency. In addition, working with riders, employers, government agencies, educational institutions and community groups, RTA seeks to gather input for ways to improve service and focus on customer needs. The agency is also dedicated to working with local transit advocates to gather support from elected officials and community leaders in order to further legislative efforts that advance public transportation improvements. RTA's Marketing Director will present an overview of their marketing activities at the CAC/SSTAC meeting. In addition to the marketing activities presented above, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) launched an Innovative Practices for Increased Ridership initiative to bring together the most innovative practices that have been undertaken by transit operators across the nation to increase ridership. Information on innovative practices can be further researched by accessing FTA's website as follows: 1) Federal Transit Administration 2) Click on the Office of the Administrator key. 3) Scroll down the page to Ridership Related Links and select Innovative Practices for Increased Ridership. In reviewing the FTA website, Commission staff found the following three innovative programs: 1) Just Ask Gordon The Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) developed a countywide transit service "betwe en the communities in and around Ventura County." Because the county is made up of a number of non-contiguous communities, service between the communities was a challenge. Using light humor, VCTC developed a countywide TV/Radio marketing campaign to increase awareness of the transit services available. The marketing campaign provides residents with information on bus routes and destinations available as well as services such as SMARTCARD and its Guaranteed Ride Home program. The ads are broadcast in both English and Spanish over the cable television and popular radio stations. In summary, the marketing program centers around a reluctant transit guru, "Gor don" who is somewhat hapless but always seems to have the right answer when questioned no matter what the unusual circumstances are or the question asked. Gordon will find himself "advertising " public transit services in ways which catch the public's attention via an entertaining format. Gordon makes appearances on buses, giving away tee-shirts. The "Just ask Gordon" campaign has successfully focused on the "13 to thirty -something" age group with TV cable ads running mostly on MTV and Comedy Central. Results*: Ridership increased: 15.4% (FY 2003/04) and 6.2% (FY 2002/03). 2) Human Billboards and Website The Eastern Contra Costa Transit Authority hired people from a temporary placement agency to stand at freeway entrances with handheld billboards during the morning commute. The billboards advertised commuter service to the local BART train station. The target market was the commuters stuck in traffic waiting to get on the freeway. A website was developed promoting the route (www.bus2bart.com). Additionally, they worked with a local commuter agency which provided funding for a "buy one - get one free" promotion. Results*: ridership increased from 13,800 to 16,375 monthly. 3) Classroom on Wheels: The Eastern Contra Costa Transit Authority turned a 1987 bus which was slated for retirement into a vibrant " Classroom on Wheels." The bus was gutted and colorful seats and carpets were installed. Signs explaining various rules and safety tips are displayed throughout the bus. A television with a VCR was installed to show videos about riding the bus. A workbook was developed which includes: ■ Background about public transportation ■ Information and activities that illustrate how buses contribute positively to the community and the environment ■ Tips on rules on riding the bus safely and with consideration ■ Activities designed to teach future passengers to plan a bus trip, read a map and use a timetable The goal of the program is to 1) educate elementary -aged students about public transportation; 2) groom tomorrow's 6th — 12th grade students to ride the bus respectfully and safely; and 3) to gain community support for public transportation and for the Tri Delta Transit system. Results*: 1 % increase in overall system ridership. *Data source: FTA website: Innovative Practices for Increased Ridership )11N11011Y31N11, 1 3aA til3 F -LILO NNV O L 1 Effective January 26, 2009 Menu ink/Anwar_ M'J 2,4all Joint Sta, _ Ventura Count, tln: - Veiled Line � _ Sai Bernard no the uMN - e, de Urn '�`�' _ aeC Deny gene _nandEnen n e[-n,er,I,ne a F„ ,E bon Operated by Ho ernRed ne l51""/,QMetrc Line ItiOt FalU — Gfeen Lne(tlgn l) - IJielra Ga tl lr^e lLight Pall, So.lhem Ca-ilwnia Rogional ITy YoilnlarRltasa-n 111 BUSINESS REPLY MAIL FIRST-CLASS MAIL PERMIT NO 75048 LOS ANGELES CA POSTAGE WILL BE PAID BY ADDRESSEE HOMELINK ADVANTAGE METROLINK 700 S FLOWER ST 26TH FL LOS ANGELES CA 90017-9704 II IIIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII NO POSTAGE NECESSARY IF MAILED IN THE UNITED STATES FREE ntiLa jam'ja WON (At FijIML,711E,N1- R-TFRIP To receive your free Metrolink ticket, apply online at metrolinktrains.com/newhome.
