More about this project:

50 million one-way trips are made annually between these two destinations with 85% of them by car or bus. At full operations, we expect to attract approximately 22% of the market or 11 million one-way trips each year.

Train ticket prices will be on par with the cost of gas and parking. The elevated train experience residents and tourists have come to expect (and love) in South Florida will be offered along this route as well, including but not limited to: free onboard Wi-Fi, fully ADA accessibility from station to train, a wide selection of food and beverage, checked luggage and hotel check-in services.

This will transform transportation in Southern California and Las Vegas for generations by providing a fast and efficient connection that gets people out of their cars, reduces traffic congestion and decreases air pollution.
