ANALYSIS OF WEST COAST CORRIDOR STUDY ALTERNATIVES
The report investigates the social advisability, technical feasibility and economic practicality of high-speed ground transportation within the West Coast Corridor defined as the area between Tijuana, Mexico, and Vancouver, British Columbia through the cities of San Diego, Los Angeles, Fresno, San Francisco, Sacramento, California; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington. Four study scenarios were analyzed, including the null alternative, the high-speed ground transportation alternative (high-speed--100-mph and high-speed advanced systems--300 mph), the full-corridor study, and the subcorridor alternatives.
