Panel 1: California's Trains

9:00-10:30 a.m.

George H.W. Bush Conference Center, Beckman Hall, Room 404


Dr. Karen E. Philbrick (Moderator): Director, Mineta Transportation Institute, San Jose State University

Dan Richard: Director, California High Speed Rail

Dr. Martin Wachs: Distinuished professor of Urban Planning, UCLA Luskin School (emeritus)

Lou Thompson: California High Speed Rail Peer Group Review

Tian Feng: District Architect, San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART)


What role should rail play in CA’s transportation future? Should rail dollars be spent on projects that help us to get around the state or around our local communities? Is the high speed rail project a bold new initiative or colossal boondoggle? Is Orange County’s $300 million, four-mile Streetcar the future of local transportation or white elephant? Should Orange County push for an extension of LA’ s Metro to Santa Ana?  Should proposals such as Elon Musk’s Hyperloop be taken seriously? Is “fixed” rail the way to go given the coming autonomous vehicle (or self-driving cars and trucks) revolution?
