      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.


      PANEL INCLUDES:

      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
      politically-sensitive project.

      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
      corridor.

      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.)
