The Goleta train station is getting an upgrade and organizers want to hear input from the community.

An open house to discuss the Goleta Train Station Master Plan will be held May 2 and May 8 at 6:00 p.m.

The City is developing a new multi-modal train station next to the existing Amtrak platform on South La Patera Lane.

By creating a full-service station, the City hopes to increase train ridership, improve connections to bus transit, accommodate transit service to and from the Santa Barbara Airport and UCSB, add new bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and allow accommodation for future additional train storage that will support increased commuter rail needs.

At the meeting, you can learn details regarding the train stations master plan and city leaders will listen to your priorities and concerns regarding the proposal.

The meeting on May 2 will be held at City of Goleta Council Chambers located at 130 Cremona Dr. Suite B. The meeting on May 8 will be held at the Goleta Valley Community center located at 5679 Hollister Ave.
