California gives first look at towering bullet train stations for a $3 BILLION high-speed route in the Central Valley that will travel 170 miles at 220 miles per hour

California has gotten a first look at the towering stations for the incredible bullet trains that will soon fly across the West Coast at speeds of 220 miles per hour.

Biden has vowed to fulfill his election promise of building a “world-class high-speed rail line” by spending $8.2 billion in federal funding on 10 passenger rail projects across the US.

The Biden administration has allocated $3.1 billion to California for the state’s ultrafast line projects — one of which will race through the Central Valley and the other all the way from California to Nevada.

Brightline is building the California-to-Nevada bullet train, which could be operational in 2026 and transport passengers from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in just two hours.

The California Inaugural High-Speed ​​Rail Service Project will also receive some federal funding to bring high-speed rail to California’s Central Valley.

The Central Valley’s high-speed rail stations will be huge – with wide platforms and expansive plazas, as well as ample parking

Although construction of the high-speed line has been underway since 2015, passengers will not officially be able to board until 2028.

The Merced station is the largest of the project and covers 215,000 square meters.  It will be a multi-storey building with beautiful wooden ceilings and brick walls that will be built in the center of the city

The railroad will cover 170 miles from Bakersfield to Merced, with stops in Madera, Fresno and Kings/Tulare.

Ultimately, the larger train project will run between Los Angeles and San Francisco and all cities in between in a three-hour trip, much shorter than the roughly seven-hour trip.

The overall goal is to connect smaller cities in Central and Inland California with larger cities in the North and South.

Lawmakers have said the “ambitious” railroads will be helpful in many ways, with San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi saying that “these bullet trains will make travel faster and easier, bring homes closer, create new jobs and economic opportunities that would otherwise be out of reach. , provide cleaner air for our children and help save our planet.’

While the new trains will far exceed all existing U.S. rail travel in terms of speed, with Amtrak leading current competitors at a less impressive 160 miles per hour, the 220 miles per hour speeds will not harm the environment.

According to the White House, the trains will be fully electric and powered by 100 percent renewable energy.

To get West Coasters excited for what’s to come, the California High-Speed ​​Rail Authority has released photos of the state-of-the-art train stations that will accompany the brand new bullet trains.

The Central Valley’s high-speed rail stations will be enormous, with wide platforms and expansive plazas, as well as ample parking.

The indoor stations are light and bright – with high ceilings and plenty of seating surrounded by greenery and floor-to-ceiling windows.

For every station except Fresno, passengers must board the bullet trains from elevated platforms.

In Fresno, passengers board and disembark at a station in the city’s Chinatown district, with pedestrian bridges on both sides.

Fresno’s station, which is next to the city’s shopping center, is also surrounded by ample parking — reflecting the need for “park and ride” services that many commuters who use the bullet trains might need.
