Surcharge rates for the Alameda Corridor, in Southern California, are set to increase effective January 1, 2016. The expressway, which encompasses routes between Los Angeles, Long Beach, and intermodal rail yards 20-25 miles inland (east of downtown Los Angeles), allows trains to bypass 90 miles of 20th-century branch lines, and avoid more than 200 street-level railroad crossings.
The Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority (ACTA) created and implemented this fee, which was designed to pay off the debts of constructing and operating the Alameda Corridor.
