Ultra-High-Speed Ground Transportation

Study looks at 250 mph connections

Ultra-High-Speed Ground Transportation will be the main topic of discussion at the March 28 Executive Board Meeting.

Washington, Oregon and British Columbia are working together on a study to connect cities in the Cascadia region through faster ground transportation alternatives that would meet or exceed speeds of 250 mph.

The Washington State Department of Transportation seeks to make a business case analysis from the study to show the Legislature this June. The case would include corridor options, with stations and alignments as well as technologies, ridership, funding, revenues and governance structure.

The Executive Board is also poised to recommend PSRC’s Fiscal Years 2020-21 Budget and Work Program to the General Assembly, which will meet at the Washington State Convention Center on May 30.
