This study documents an investigation into the potential for high-speed rail (HSR) service in California between Los Angeles and San Francisco/Sacramento via a new alignment in the Central Valley. An earlier report, IURD Working Paper 564, reviewed technology and alignment issues, recommended a steel-wheel-on-steel rail option, and identified a preferred corridor for further analysis. This report presents the results of further analysis, including demand and revenue projections.
