West is a 260-mile rail network designed to take cars off the road and offer millions of travellers an eco-friendly way to travel between Los Angeles, one of Amreica’s largest cities, and Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world.

Revealed on Brightline West’s website, it is expected for the project to break ground on the first segment between Victor Valley and Las Vegas in late 2020 and commence revenue service in early 2024. Brightline West is a privately funded project.

The company behind the project, Brightline Holdings, develops and operates high-speed passenger rail systems in the United States. Its first passenger rail system, Brightline Florida, is a 235-mile service connecting Miami and Orlando. It operates between Miami and West Palm Beach, with the Orlando extension expected to open in the second half of 2022.

Brightline West is expected to operate 200mph trainsets, removing 400,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually (car vs. plane) and ticket prices are expected to be on par with the cost of fuelling a car and parking associated costs. There will be free on-board Wi-Fi and ADA accessible cars, with a wide selection of on-board food and beverage.

Global Railway Review will bring you further project news and construction updates as the project progresses.

Mature political discussions are allowed in the Topics section,...
