Women's Transportation Seminar event: "High Speed Rail: Getting On Board"
Please join the WTS San Francisco Bay Area Chapter for a panel
discussion on the California High Speed Rail Project. This vision for
this massive infrastructure project is to link all major metropolitan
areas in California with a new high speed transportation option,
moving people and services across the state more efficiently than ever
before. Not only would its construction bring economic development
and the creation of hundreds of thousands of new jobs, but once
completed, California would see improvements to air quality,
reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, congestion relief on highways,
and greater mobility for people living in the Valley and other areas
currently underserved by other forms of transportation.
Carrie L. Bowen, Regional Director, California High Speed Rail
Authority for Central California, will discuss the funding, timing and
other challenges facing the state-wide mega-project including managing
the schedule, budget and relationships for this large complex and
Dominic Spaethling, Regional Manager, California High Speed Rail
Authority for the Peninsula Corridor, will provide an update on the
design progress being made on the San Francisco to San Jose segment
and share his insights on the various issues specific to this
Ben Tripousis, Transportation Policy Manager, City of San Jose’s
Department of Transportation, will share the South Bay perspective and
update the audience on current coordination activities that are
critical to connect High Speed Rail through San Jose.
(Additional panelists are being confirmed.)
