In a press release from the Office of San Bernardino County 1st District Supervisor Robert A. Lovingood, Brightline Trains, the nation’s only privately owned, operated and maintained express intercity passenger rail system, has agreed to buy the XpressWest high-speed rail project that would connect Victorville, California and Las Vegas, Nevada.

The announcement was welcomed on Tuesday, September 18th, 2018 by San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Chair Robert A. Lovingood, whose supervisorial district includes all of the project’s California segment.

“This is a great step forward. Brightline is a private company with private dollars and they are stepping forward. Brightline has a proven track record, so I am glad to see this development,” said Supervisor Lovingood.

Brightline is currently operates passenger rail service in Florida between Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach and is expanding to Orlando.

Brightline expects to offer convenient rail service that will make the trip in less than 2 hours.

Supervisor Lovingood said the project will have economic benefits beyond just construction jobs in the High Desert.

Brightline will link one of the most traveled routes in the country, connecting more than 22 million people living in Southern California with Las Vegas, Nevada.

Travelers make more than 50 million annual trips between Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada.
