Welcome to THE EXPERIENCE
XpressWest allows passengers to bypass traffic, traveling at speeds of up to 150 mph non-stop to and from Las Vegas in approximately 80 minutes compared to an average highway drive time of approximately 4 hours. Driving on I-15 can take several more hours during peak times, and longer with any accidents or other delays. XpressWest alleviates congestion on the I-15, providing a better, cleaner, safer, and faster alternative to driving, and an unparalleled transportation EXPERIENCE.
Because visitor trends and demographics clearly indicate the “Las Vegas EXPERIENCE” cannot start early enough, XpressWest will be more than just a mode of travel. It will extend the Las Vegas EXPERIENCE through innovative concepts such as hotel check-in services, dinner and show reservations, and multiple entertainment options all on board the train.
XpressWest will welcome America to our country’s first High Speed passenger EXPERIENCE. From the moment you arrive at the station the EXPERIENCE is designed to deliver convenience and Las Vegas EXCITEMENT. Every train is designed with state of the art amenities featuring all first and business class seating, and specially designed full-service entertainment club cars. Food, beverage, wifi, entertainment, concierge services, flexible club seating arrangements, and full handicap accessibility are just a few of the amenities available on every journey. Passengers will EXPERIENCE the most advanced high speed stations built anywhere in the world and designed to provide secure, yet barrier free arrivals and departures. Stations feature secure, covered parking, courtesy door to door baggage handling, a variety of dining and retail amenities; and complete intermodal transportation options.
With the environmental review process complete, all required federal right-of-way approvals in place, and having received the necessary licensing and approvals to construct and operate, XpressWest will provide a foundation for high speed rail infrastructure in the Southwest Corridor. High speed rail represents the future of sustainable, green, high capacity and efficient transportation in the United States. Through private sector investment, XpressWest meets America’s need for passenger rail infrastructure with a system that promises interoperability and regional connectivity.
