The ACE corridor upgrade should be planned in stages, with the final alignment selection through Livermore deferred until after the the western end upgrade has been completed. "Temporary" upgrades to improve capacity along the corridor and faster and more frequent service to the east bay on ACE would grow the constituency for keeping the station in a downtown location.
