Description

About railLA is a pro-rail voice for LA and California. We engage citizens to support expanded train networks statewide from High-Speed Rail to Light Rail. Mission railLA is a coalition of experienced professionals, passionate citizens, and business leaders organized to ensure that the people of California benefit from the nation's first viable high-speed train network. railLA will advocate, serve, and inform communities and other stakeholders impacted as fast trains become a reality and transform the way we work and live. Company Overview railLA is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Long considered the capital of American car culture and suburban sprawl, Los Angeles is the ideal location to illustrate the positive impacts of high-speed rail on the environment, traffic congestion, and sustainable urban design and planning. By creating a realistic vision of the opportunities that high-speed rail will bring, railLA will leverage private sector and grassroots support to ensure timely and efficient implementation of this statewide project with Los Angeles' Union Station as its hub. As a pioneer for the transition from an automobile-oriented to transit-oriented society, we will establish precedent not only for Los Angeles and California, but for the entire nation.
