Still Hope For Victorville-to-Vegas Rail

Still Hope for Victorville-to-Vegas RailRail To Vegas Could Still Happen

The conversation about a rail running from Southern California to Las Vegas is not a new one. In fact, dialogue about this mode of transportation has been ongoing for years. One of the more serious projects moving towards such a rail was spearheaded by XpressWest, a Las Vegas-based company who had plans to run a rail from Victorville to Vegas. This high-speed rail would get travelers from Point A to Point B in just 80 minutes for a ticket that costs between $75 and $100. XpressWest officials remain hopeful.

The High Desert Corridor project is a new proposed highway that plans to run a multi-modal transportation corridor (including a rail) across the 63 miles between Highway 14 in Palmdale and Highway 18 in Apple Valley. This corridor’s environmental impact statement and report is going for clearance in early 2016. XpressWest believes that once that project gets environmental clearance it will bode well for their rail project. The goal is ultimately to connect their Victorville-to-Vegas rail with the California High Speed Rail project’s station in Palmdale.

Governor Jerry Brown’s bullet train, which will run from Sacramento to San Diego and hit San Francisco, San Jose, Fresno, Bakersfield, Los Angeles, and Anaheim could also give momentum to this rail project, as it will make it possible for people in California’s metro areas to board the bullet train and connect to the XpressWest rail to get to Vegas.
