We're Reimagining Rail
The Link21 Team has made great progress in defining a vision for the Program to best connect people, places, and possibilities across the Northern California Megaregion. In Phase 1, we will be developing concepts with our partners and members of the public to realize this vision. Learn how we’re reimagining passenger rail with the four building blocks of Link21.
The Benefits of Link21 Are Game‑changing
New passenger rail connections will help you get to the places you want to go and protect our environment from the harmful greenhouse gas emissions of cars. Link21 will have a positive impact on the environment by creating jobs, advancing equity, and tackling the climate crisis.
We're Committed to Equity and Inclusion
Read our equity vision statement to learn how Link21 is working hard to deliver a better passenger rail system to transit-dependent riders, communities harmed by past infrastructure projects, and individuals with limited access to housing, jobs, and opportunities.
We want as many voices and perspectives as possible. Learn how you can get involved with Link21.
