The GRID Project
The Transit Coalition supports and actively promotes the GRID Project, a three-part regional container supply chain network with large scale infrastructure connecting the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to the inland regions of Southern California, well into the Inland Empire, with capacity to expand beyond. Summarily, container vessels would dock at a facility that transfer containers either directly onto trains waiting at portside or through a freight tunnel connecting to inland distribution centers. This would eliminate trucks that would otherwise transport the containers from the ports to the rail yards further inland. GRID Port Modernization is an environmentally superior alternative to various proposed conventional infrastructure projects that have dubious environmental benefits.
