That rail line from SoCal to Las Vegas is coming. Turns out, the only private passenger rail company in the US, Brightline Holdings, has plans in the work, with construction starting in 2023. The project will be completed by 2026.
This high-speed line will travel at speeds of up to 180-200 mph and transport passengers from California to Nevada in only three and a half hours.
The price tag, around $8 billion. The project will likely receive low-interest funding from the federal government's Infrastructure and Jobs Act that was past in 2021.
So if you'd like a quicker way to make the trip, without fighting traffic, this could be reality in less than 5 years!
