A high speed ground transportation system is proposed to be built in the State of Washington to connect all regions. The proposed system will be approximately 700 miles in length and would be constructed in a series of stages. This proposed system will connect the city of Seattle with Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, British Columbia in Western Washington, and with Moses Lake and Spokane in Eastern Washington. Service to both downtown and airport locations will be provided with transit times of two hours or less as the goal between the major cities.
