Does Rail Have A Future?


SoCal Connected producer Saul Gonzalez's story "Track to the Future?" looked at the promises and perils of California's proposed high-speed rail. Now host Val Zavala expands that conversation by taking it to the public square.

Join Val live and in person on Tuesday, May 4 at 7:30 p.m., as she moderates a panel discussion addressing the future of high-speed rail in California. She will be joined by a number of experts, including LA County Metropolitan Transit Authority Board Member Richard Katz, Gloria Ohland of Reconnecting America, and Adrian Moore of the Reason Foundation.

The forum will be presented by the non-profit organization Zócalo Public Square and KCET's SoCal Connected, and has been undertaken as part of PBS's Blueprint America, a yearlong multi-platform initiative examining infrastructure issues throughout America and the world.

You can get more details and register for the event here.
