goleta train station

After a grand jury investigation into train-related deaths in the Santa Barbara area, the City of Santa Barbara has come up with plans to reduce risk in the corridor.

Other nearby jurisdictions, including Goleta and the County of Santa Barbara, are expected to do the same.

A number of efforts are underway to beef up train service on the South Coast, to get more people to use it, and to make it more practical for commuters. One of the latest efforts includes doing something about the bare bones train station in Goleta, turning it into a full service transportation hub.
