Happening in Santa Cruz County in Fall 2021, Coast Futura is a demonstration of a rail-based, clean energy tram for the Santa Cruz Branch Rail Line. The affordable, wireless, battery-operated tram is California-built, produces zero emissions, will be powered by carbon-free energy from Monterey Bay Community Power, and is quiet for both riders and the neighborhoods it will pass through. The Coast Futura demonstration is a proof-of-concept and an example of a path forward for Santa Cruz County — one that includes a cost-effective, planet-friendly transit solution for locals and visitors alike.
