These responses from Larry, Ken and Andrew all raise viable options in solving the travel infrastructure needs of San Diego. A myopic search for a solution that includes only one airport (Lindbergh or Miramar) would cut off the healthy debate necessary to truly solve the problem.
Multiple airports connected via light rail or shuttle service, high-speed rail to large regional airports and commerce centers and load sharing between airports can all combine to create a network of transportation assets managed to ease congestion and increase capacity.
This is the kind of thinking that should be employed in this debate. The easy solutions are not usually the best ones, that’s why they’re easy. Let’s elevate this discussion and attempt to really solve it, or our kids will be having the same conversations in years to come.
