High speed rail is headed to the West coast. And we can’t wait.
Brightline West, a Brightline affiliated company, will connect the 260 miles between Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
Expected travel time is approx. 3 hours
Our route is 2x faster than driving
Zero-emission, electric train sets
Expected top speed is 200 mph
400,000 tons of CO2 removed annually by reducing 3 million vehicles
Connections to Metrolink and other regional transit options, and planned future connection to California High Speed Rail in Palmdale
Convenient station location off the Vegas strip (I-15)
More about this project:
50 million one-way trips are made annually between these two destinations with 85% of them by car or bus. At full operations, we expect to attract approximately 22% of the market or 11 million one-way trips each year.
Train ticket prices will be on par with the cost of gas and parking. The elevated train experience residents and tourists have come to expect (and love) in South Florida will be offered along this route as well, including but not limited to: free onboard Wi-Fi, fully ADA accessibility from station to train, a wide selection of food and beverage, checked luggage and hotel check-in services.
