RailPAC’s Key Priorities
- Preserving and unlocking the potential of the LOSSAN (Amtrak Pacific Surfliner) Corridor between San Diego – Los Angeles – San Luis Obispo by completing current state of good repairs and double track projects as well as moving forward with line relocation projects and tunnels to avoid threats from sea level rise, beach erosion and wave action.
- A daily Amtrak Sunset Limited, providing daily through service on the Texas Eagle to Chicago.
- A compete re-fleeting of Amtrak, including new Bi-Level equipment, is critical. RailPAC will work with California and Nevada legislators and congressional leaders to stress the need to appropriate capital funds each fiscal year to complete a full replacement of Amtrak’s aging equipment.
- California High Speed Rail: A focus on completing the Interim Operating Segment, Merced – Bakersfield and utilizing resources and programs in the recently passed Infrastructure Bill to begin work on the Chowchilla – San Jose line segment.
