Abstract: The objective of the Mission Valley Guideway Transit Study was to assess the feasibility of developing a completely elevated, fully automated guideway transit system to serve as a circulator/distributor in the Mission Valley area of San Diego, California. If proven feasible, the guideway could help alleviate short-trip traffic congestion. It could also possibly serve areas of the valley not presently served by transit and feed the Mission Valley West Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line now in final design. The study has demonstrated the physical feasibility of a guideway system for Mission Valley and established three logical alignments and order-of-magnitude patronage and costs.
