High-Speed Rail Maintenance Facilities

To keep the 500-mile California High-Speed Rail system running smoothly, a number of operations and maintenance facilities will be located along the route between San Francisco and Los Angeles/Anaheim. These facilities will support more than 1,000 high-skilled jobs.

Keeping with our sustainability goals, facilities will be designed, constructed and operated with LEED® Gold Certification—being energy-efficient and environmentally sensitive. With high-speed trains running throughout the day and night, three overlapping work shifts will keep maintenance activities operational 24 hours per day. To minimize effects on train operating schedules, most major maintenance activities would take place overnight, between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
