Cumulatively, the high-speed rial project has provided a living wage for more than 2,500 workers that have worked more than 1.6 million work hours. more than 70 percent of work hours were performed by targeted workers and almost 30 percent of those work hours were performed by disadvantaged workers, vastly exceeding the targets in CBA.

California’s high-speed rail system will connect the mega-regions of the State. The Phase 1 system will run from San Francisco to the Los Angeles basin in under three hours at speeds capable of over 200 miles per hour. The system will eventually extend to Sacramento and San Diego, totaling 800 miles with up to 24 stations (Phase 2).
