High Speed Rail: Finally on Track?

Here’s a question on many of our minds: will high speed rail become a reality? 

TransForm believes that high speed rail has the potential to reinforce cities as the hubs of our economy, relieve congested roads, plus help California meet clean air and greenhouse gas reduction goals.  Yet it also has an enormous price tag, is being slapped by lawsuits and has generated opposition in cities and farms alike. (Read more in TransForm's June 2012 report). 

Join Dan Richard, Chair of the California High Speed Rail Authority, Elizabeth Alexis from Californians Advocating Responsible Rail Design; and Marian Lee from Caltrain for a lively discussion on overcoming some of the most confounding issues facing the project and addressing community concerns.  Sponsored by TransForm and the California Association of Environmental Professionals, this event will be on Thursday, November 29 at San Jose State University. The event includes light snacks and networking starting at 6:00 p.m.  

Registration is $10 (free for students and TransForm supporters).  Register here.
