Our Vision for Rail in California and Nevada May 7th, 2010
CONNECTIONS! It’s all about connections. Depending on your journey you may live close to a station that has a direct service to your destination. But there’s a good chance that you’ll need to transfer, from bus to train, light rail to high speed rail, Surfliner to long distance Amtrak. RailPAC’s campaign is all about connections between these modes so that all of us can enjoy mobility without the automobile.
Our map attempts to portray the statewide system that we want to see over the next two decades. What it cannot show, but is equally important, is the electronic ticketing and information system that is needed to make passenger rail easy to use for 40 million Californians.
