Some months ago, a company, XpressWest, cultivated and began proposing for a new high-speed electric train. One stop would be located in Apple Valley in the California high desert and the other in Las Vegas.
And now, just a few weeks ago, a more concrete proposal by the Florida-based company for Las Vegas train service has continued to advance. The privately-held firm has taken huge key steps to secure private debt funding under tax-free private bonds. On April 14th, the convenient electric train was approved for them. An additional $2.4 billion will now be added to the total amount funded. Apart from this, there will be one other session of funding needed. Even so, this was the most crucial step of the project.
The Chief Strategy Officer of the Florida-based company expects that construction of the project could start at the end of this year. If all goes well, the expected completion will be sometime in 2023. Many are speculating that the average fare will be around $60. Travel time will be roughly 80 to 90 minutes.
Above all, this development will make things a lot easier for those in or nearby Southern California looking to go to Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas! This train will be an easier, safer, and environmentally better option for those in the area heading to and from Vegas.
Despite COVID-19, we can feel positively about our music lifestyles resuming by 2023 where we can enjoy this train! Undoubtedly, it will add to the whole experience for a weekend in California or in Vegas!
