Dan Richard: High-Speed Rail and the Future of Transportation in California

Dan Richard, Board Chair, California High-Speed Rail Authority

The cost of statewide high-speed rail is estimated at $68 billion. The Northern California pieces are in the $12–15 billion range. Currently $3.3 billion is slated to come from federal funding and $9.95 billion is available in state bond money. Will the economics of high-speed rail come together? What will be the actual timeline? Will the majority of Californians benefit from this plan? Bring your questions to ask the Chair of the California High Speed Rail Project.
