Once fully built out, California High-Speed Rail will connect eight of the state’s ten largest cities. For some of these municipalities, such as Sacramento and San Diego, a high-speed rail connection is a promise still far in the future. But cities along the route’s first phase, including San Francisco, San José and Los Angeles, could see trains arriving at their respective stations much sooner, providing increased access, mobility and economic growth. High-speed rail will make it easier to get to these cities — but equally easy to leave. What effect will this have on the economies and growth patterns of our state’s larger cities, and how should they begin planning for those changes now? Come discuss the role of high-speed rail in big cities and the necessary steps that those here in California must undertake to prepare, based on examples from around the world.
