Bay Area Regional Rail Plan Workshops   August 10th, 2007

Dates and Times

Track the Bay Area’s rail future by attending a public meeting near you on the Draft Regional Rail Plan

After 18 months of analysis and stakeholder involvement, we are unveiling a blueprint for expanding the region’s network of rail lines. The Draft Regional Rail Plan will identify potential rail passenger and rail freight improvements for the near-, intermediate-, and long-term.

Come to one of a series of public meetings (listed below) where you can:

· See and comment on what’s proposed to move people and freight throughout the region in the coming 50 years

· Learn how the regional rail network would be enhanced with proposed California high-speed rail investments (and view alternatives for bringing high-speed rail into the Bay Area)
