We recently announced our expansion to the West Coast through our acquisition of DesertXpress Enterprises, LLC. Pursuant to the XpressWest Acquisition, we have acquired the rights to develop a high-speed rail project within a corridor between Victorville, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. We now have the opportunity to develop, operate and connect Las Vegas with Southern California by means of a new high-speed passenger rail system traveling up to 180 miles per hour, implying a travel time of approximately 90 minutes.
We intend for our Florida passenger rail service and the Vegas Expansion to serve as a scalable model to expand our operations to a number of other large and congested intercity travel corridors in North America where large and growing travel populations seek a similar solution for medium-distance, “too long to drive, too short to fly” travel.

The project includes an approximately 173-mile passenger-only, electrified railroad between Las Vegas, NV and Victorville, CA constructed to FRA Class 9 (high speed) standards along the I-15 corridor.
