Chair of the day: Ray Wolfe

In July, San Bernardino County Transportation Authority approved a Memorandum of Understanding with XpressWest to explore the possibility of a privately funded high-speed rail line into Rancho Cucamonga from Las Vegas.  The new proposal would represent an expansion of XpressWest’s currently planned service from Las Vegas to Apple Valley, using right of way through the Cajon Pass along the Interstate 15 freeway and eventually connecting with the Rancho Cucamonga Metrolink station.  Husein Cumber will discuss the option of including Rancho Cucamonga in their express service from Las Vegas and its impact on our regional transportation network.
