California is building North America’s first electrified, high-speed line.
It will be a breakthrough for California, and for the U.S., by:
1. Connecting hundreds of cities and towns.
2. Slashing carbon emissions.
3. Driving transportation innovation nationwide.
The state legislature needs to appropriate the next round of bond funds this spring. Please join with us in urging the legislature to move forward by signing the petition.
Dear Governor Newsom and members of the California State Assembly,
Please work with the California High Speed Rail Authority to adopt and implement the 2020 business plan. And, please appropriate the remaining Prop 1A funds as recommended by that plan.
Linking Los Angeles and San Francisco via the Central Valley is important for keeping the state an attractive place to live and work. It is a vital tool for meeting the state’s emission reduction goals. And, it is a critical component of an integrated network of trains and buses that will improve transportation for the entire state.
Completing the Merced – Fresno – Bakersfield segment with electrified high-speed track is the essential first step.
This straight and flat 171-mile segment is the backbone of the statewide rail network. It will allow CA to test trains going as fast as 220 mph—the first true high-speed line in the United States.
It will slash 90 minutes off the travel times for hundreds of city pairs through connecting trains and buses, which will also see expanded service.
With over 50 structures built or being built, and 5,200 total jobs, this project has helped the Central Valley during COVID. Expediting the completion of the Merced – Bakersfield segment is the most prudent course to take.
President "Amtrak Joe" Biden is in office and the momentum for completing California High-Speed Rail is now.
Let’s get ‘er done, California!
