The Authority is currently working with the cities of Bakersfield and Shafter, as well as local residents, stakeholders and regulatory agencies to refine an alignment that includes a station at the intersection of F Street and Golden State Avenue. This locally-generated alternative has been developed in cooperation with the cities and will be studied along with the approved Bakersfield Hybrid Alternative in a supplemental environmental document.
As part of the planning process for a future high-speed rail station, the Authority and the City of Bakersfield have entered into a station-area planning agreement. This agreement includes project management, community outreach, station area visioning, multimodal access and parking planning, economic real estate analysis and implementation planning.
