The California High-Speed Rail Authority has released a video highlighting the accomplishments of the growing system in the last year.
In 2022, the authority passed significant milestones in bringing high-speed rail to Northern California, completing environmental clearance for both Northern California project sections. Simultaneously, work continues in delivering and maintaining electrified rail travel options in the Bay Area. Caltrain celebrated the arrival of its first electric train cars, and BART held a special Board Meeting in October that included a Hayward Maintenance Complex tour.
It was in August when the final Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIR/EIS) for the approximately 43-mile project for the San Francisco to San Jose section was approved by the California High-Speed Rail Authority Board of Directors.
The approved alternative extends from the previously approved San Jose high-speed rail station and includes new high-speed rail stations in San Francisco and Millbrae; construction of a light maintenance facility on the east side of the Caltrain corridor in Brisbane, and improvements for safety and speed in the region.
