POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVED INTERCITY PASSENGER RAIL SERVICE IN CALIFORNIA: STUDY OF CORRIDORS

The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the potential for increasing intercity passenger train speeds in various corridors throughout California. This report has met with two objectives: 1) the state's existing intercity rail corridors have been evaluated for potential upgrading in terms of estimated costs, travel times, and population projections; and 2) the most promising existing rail and "new-corridor" alternatives for high-speed service between downtown Los Angeles and downtown San Francisco have been compared and analyzed in terms of costs, travel times, and population projections.
