California High-Speed Rail: The Proposal for Connecting San Francisco to San Diego
California's high-speed rail system will be an electrically powered high-speed train consisting of 800 miles of track from San Francisco to San Diego. The project is run by the California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA). There will be two phases of track construction. Phase 1 will be a 520-mile line that goes from Los Angeles to San Francisco, with construction beginning in the Central Valley. Once the Los Angeles to San Francisco line is complete, the line will be extended to include Sacramento and San Diego in Phase 2.
