Public Engagement

We Value Your Input

CCJPA and its project partners are committed to meaningful public engagement throughout the South Bay Connect project. There are many voices in our community and numerous considerations to take into account. Community participation is vital so that project solutions serve our regional needs.


To reach the diverse populations who ride Capitol Corridor or live and work adjacent to the rail lines, the communication and outreach program includes the distribution of multi-lingual and timely information to educate and inform as well as encourage participation. During these unprecedented times, Capitol Corridor is offering remote, virtual engagement activities that allow the public to participate in a safe and convenient way while social distancing. These engagement tools include an online meeting, hosting telephone town halls, live chats online, email distribution of materials, webinar presentations and more.

It is critical that the public and key agency and community stakeholders participate in this important project throughout the environmental planning process. Below please find some key tools and tactics that are being implemented as part of the outreach:
