As the city of San Clemente studies the feasibility of a future trolley service, officials are asking for the public’s input on what they feel is important to include in a prospective citywide trolley.

In a press release last week, city officials said San Clemente’s future trolley would be similar to the summer shuttle launched this year in Dana Point and the summer trolley in Laguna Beach, which started service in 2002. San Juan Capistrano also launched a summer trolley service this year.

In order to design a trolley service that meets the needs of the community, the city is asking residents, business owners and visitors to take a survey online at Surveys should be completed by Nov. 6, 2015.

Senior Transportation Engineer Jennifer Rosales said the city of San Clemente is currently in the midst of a trolley feasibility study.

Rosales added that the city’s goal is to apply for a grant from the Orange County Transportation Authority’s Project V program, which awards funds for community-based transit services. She expects OCTA to release a call for projects sometime in December.

For more information on the survey or the trolley study, contact Rosales at 949.361.6114 or
