PALMDALE – There are still seats available for interested persons to take the City of Palmdale’s free bus ride to voice support for the Antelope Valley route of the proposed high speed rail (HSR) project at the upcoming California High Speed Rail Association (CHRSA) board meeting on Thursday, Jan. 12 at the Los Angeles County Transportation Authority (LACTA), located at 1 Gateway Plaza in Los Angeles.
The bus will depart from Palmdale City Hall, 38300 Sierra Highway at 7:15 a.m. sharp on Thursday, Jan. 12. Reserve a seat by calling 661-267-5139, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Antelope Valley residents may also take a Metrolink train to the meeting, as the LACTA is located at Union Square, where the train stops. Metrolink trains leave the Palmdale Transportation Center at either 6:24 a.m. or 7:01 a.m. and are scheduled to arrive on time for the meeting. Train schedules may be found at www.metrolinktrains.com.
“A decision on alignment will probably be made at this meeting,” said Palmdale City Manager Steve Williams. “The CHSRA Staff will present the outcome of the conceptual study of the Grapevine alternative and will request the board to approve the future actions at this meeting, so it is very important that the Antelope Valley is represented at this meeting to have our voices heard.”
