Environmentalists protest high-speed rail

The plan to have high-speed rail service the Bay Area through the Pacheco Pass faces opposition from a coalition of enviromental organizations. The coalition will hold a news conference at 9 a.m. to protest the recommendation from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission that high-speed rail should connect to the Central Valley through Pacheco Pass, which is near Gilroy and Hollister.

Shortly after the protest, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission will meet to discuss potential comments from the committee to the High-Speed Rail Authority on a draft report of enviromental impact of bringing the trains to the Bay Area.
