Off Track:
Examining California’s High Speed Rail Project

NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit has spent months examining the reality behind California’s High Speed Rail Project, its promises and its shortcomings. Beginning with questions about disputed invoices in early 2019 and continuing with questions about construction timelines and project deliverables, these series of stories track the progress and lack of progress on the multi-billion dollars project and are among the first to expose overspending, underperformance and the reality behind how the public’s tax dollars are being spent on what originally was billed as a way to get from San Francisco to Los Angeles in just about the amount of time it would take to fly.
