Sacramento State Students Inaugural Train Interior Testing Group

The Authority was excited to welcome the first student group for user testing of our train interior mockup spaces in Sacramento. Students with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) of Sacramento State brought their enthusiasm, analysis and thoughts to engage in the three-hour feedback experience. With discussions of seating, entrances, lounge areas, lighting, and much more, the students were excited to provide input for the design of the nation’s first truly electric high-speed rail train that will run at 220 mph. These life size mockups of three different high-speed rail train cars give people the opportunity to test possible seating and accommodating features of a future high-speed rail train, giving designers opportunities to hear recommendations from various stakeholders before we purchase trains. If you would like to learn more about our train interior design process and bring the discussion to your classroom, email us at!

Title reads 2023 Sustainability Report Building California’s Sustainable Future. It’s that time again, California High-Speed Rail Authority’s 2023 지속가능성 보고서 캘리포니아의 지속 가능한 미래 구축 is now available for students to utilize for school assignments and capstone projects. The report highlights the nation’s biggest, greenest infrastructure project focusing on reducing impact on the environment and supporting goals of continuing sustainability. It includes benchmarks high-speed rail has reached on offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, restoring 4,400 acres of habitat and protecting 3,190 acres of agricultural land, using cleaner equipment which has resulted in 68% less black carbon than a typical construction site, and reducing water usage by 12% despite the 38% increase in construction activity. Topics covered are economic development, safety and quality, sustainable infrastructure and energy emissions. The electrified high-speed rail will be powered by 100% renewable energy.

Big Step Towards Track and Systems

During this month’s board of directors meeting, the California High-Speed Rail Authority approved the release of a new Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the Track and Overhead Contact System (OCS) Design Services contract. The goal of this contract is to produce high level designs for the tracks and OCS for the entire 171-mile initial operating segment, as well as detailed designs for the 119-mile segment between Madera and Kern County. This contract includes laying ballast and sub-ballast, which is the base that tracks lay on, the tracks themselves, the overhead wires and the poles that support them, along-track cable containment, access walkways, fencing and drainage. The contract is the first part of a multi-part procurement strategy for designing and building everything needed to run trains on the system. The release of this RFQ is a major step towards the completion of the first truly high-speed rail system in the US.
