Description:

California high-speed rail will connect the mega-regions of the state, contribute to economic development and a cleaner environment, create jobs and preserve agricultural and protected lands. The system will run from San Francisco to the Los Angeles basin in under three hours at speeds capable of over 200 miles per hour. The system will eventually extend to Sacramento and San Diego, totaling 800 miles with up to 24 stations. In addition, the Authority is working with regional partners to implement a state-wide rail modernization plan that will invest billions of dollars in local and regional rail lines to meet the state’s 21st century transportation needs.

The Fresno to Bakersfield project section is part of the first phase of the California high-speed rail system connecting the cities of Fresno and Bakersfield to the rest of the state.The approximately 114-mile project section will provide essential connections between the Central Valley, the Silicon Valley and the Los Angeles Basin with stations in downtown Fresno and downtown Bakersfield. These station locations will help provide new economic opportunities in these downtown areas and provide easy connections to local and regional businesses and academic institutions.
