$12 Billion High-Speed Rail Project to Link Las Vegas and Los Angeles


Work is scheduled to commence on Monday on a $12 billion high-speed passenger rail line connecting Las Vegas and the Los Angeles area. Millions of passengers are anticipated to ride the trains by 2028.

Brightline West, affiliated with a company already operating a successful train line in Florida, plans to lay 218 miles of new track, primarily along Interstate 15, between a terminal near the Las Vegas Strip and Rancho Cucamonga, California.

Federal Support and Transportation Secretary’s Involvement:

The project has acquired substantial backing from the Biden administration, with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg scheduled to participate in Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony.

Brightline West aims to offer true high-speed rail service, reaching up to 186 mph. The project promises to reduce travel time between Vegas and L.A. to just over two hours and alleviate traffic congestion on Interstate 15.

High Demand and Expansion Plans:

With over 40 million annual visitors to Las Vegas and nearly 3 million residents, the rail line is expected to attract significant passenger traffic. Brightline Holdings’ success in Florida underscores the potential for high-speed rail expansion in the U.S.
