ABSTRACT: Government Code Section 14036 requires the California Department of Transportation (the Department) to complete a 10-year State Rail Plan with both passenger and freight rail elements. The law also provides that the State Rail Plan be updated every two years. The passenger rail element of the California State Rail Plan 2003-04 to 2013-14 (the State Rail Plan) examines intercity passenger rail transportation in California. This element reviews the current operations of state-support intercity rail passenger service and outlines plans for the period 2003-04 through 2013-14 for capital improvements and service expansions. The passenger rail element of the State Rail Plan is covered in Part I (Chapters I through VIII); the freight rail element is contained in Part II (Chapters IX through XV).
