High Speed Rail Open House

Please join John A. Pérez, Speaker of the Assembly, for an informational open house on high-speed rail in downtown Los Angeles

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) is hosting an informational open house in downtown Los Angeles to provide the community with project updates, information about proposed alternative alignments and station locations, design options and details of the environmental review process. This is a joint meeting with project teams for the three Southern California high-speed rail sections  Palmdale to Los Angeles, Los Angeles to Anaheim and Los Angeles to San Diego via the Inland Empire that intersect in downtown Los Angeles.

This informational open house is an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to speak directly with members of the project team, ask questions and provide feedback.

Downtown Los Angeles’ Union Station will serve as Southern California’s high-speed rail hub, connecting Anaheim and San Diego to the south with points north including San Francisco and San Jose.
