Business Plan

    SJJPA Business Plan

     
    In order to take over the administrative responsibilities of the San Joaquin rail service, the SJJPA must develop and approve a Business Plan to be included and referenced as part of the Interagency Transfer Agreement (ITA).  Starting with this Business Plan, it is now required to be submitted to the Secretary of CalSTA in draft form by April 1, 2017, and final form by June 15, 2017, to allow Amtrak time to finalize operating cost estimates.
     
    At the January 27, 2017 SJJPA Board Meeting the SJJPA approved a Draft Business Plan Outline and Proposed Interagency Transfer Agreement (ITA) Schedule.   Based upon the approved ITA schedule, the Draft SJJPA Business Plan will be completed at the March 24, 2017 SJJPA Board Meeting, however initial Draft Business Plan chapters were presented at the January 27, 2017 SJJPA Board Meetings providing more opportunity for Board, agency and public input. The Final Business Plan will be presented at the May 26, 2017 SJJPA Board Meeting after public review and revisions.
     
    As specified in AB 1779, the business plan shall include a report on the recent as well as historical performance of the corridor service, an overall operating plan including proposed service enhancements to increase ridership and provide for increased traveler demands in the corridor for the upcoming year, short-term and long-term capital improvement programs, funding requirements for the upcoming fiscal year, and an action plan with specific performance goals and objections.  The business plan shall document service improvements (rail and thruway/connecting bus) to provide the planned level of service, inclusion of operating plans to serve peak period work trips, and consideration of other service expansions and enhancements.  This initial business plan shall be consistent with the immediately previously State Rail Plan developed by Caltrans Division of Rail (DOR) pursuant to Section 14036 and the 2016 Business Plan developed by the High-Speed Rail Authority pursuant to Section 185033 of the Public Utilities Code.
