Tonight: Public meeting on high-speed rail from San Francisco to San Jose

 

People who have questions or are interested in learning more about the California high-speed rail project can attend a meeting tonight (May 25) from 5 to 8 p.m. at the SFV Lodge, located at 361 Villa St. in Mountain View.

Part of the first phase of the California rail project is a 51-mile stretch from San Francisco to San Jose. Currently, proposed stations are at 4th and King streets or the Transbay Transit Center in San Francisco, Millbrae or the San Francisco International Airport, and the Diridon Station in San Jose.

It's planned to be part of what's called a "blended system," which would share tracks with Caltrain, once it is electrified, the rail authority says.

By 2029, the high-speed rail authority says, riders should be able to move from San Francisco to Los Angeles in under three hours. In later years, the authority plans to extend the train route to include Sacramento and San Diego.
