On November 7 at 12:30 PM, SPUR will feature a dynamic panel discussing Cordoba’s cross border trolley project. This binational trolley extension proposes to extend the MTS LRT Blue Line 1.5 miles from San Ysidro, California into Tijuana, Mexico to mitigate congestion at the border crossing. The panel will explore the unique regional cooperation among binational partners in the Cali Baja megaregion that supports coordination of critical infrastructure. Attendees will learn about innovative approaches to management including binational governance, navigating a complex regulatory environment, and P3 finance.
