Q: What are the top Southern California zip codes Vegas Visitors originate from and how close are those zip codes to Victorville (the proposed station site)?

A: Victorville is a fairly convenient placement for a station. 25% of the top zip codes are under an hour or less drive time to Victorville, which is already on the route they’d be taking to Vegas.

Recently, Brightline, known for their express intercity higher-speed rail system in Florida, acquired the rights to the XpressWest project, a plan to build a high-speed train between Las Vegas and Victorville. The route often described as “too long to drive, too short to fly,” would start with a Victorville station, with plans to expand into Los Angeles in the future.  

Our team analyzed the likely zip codes of origin of visitors to the Las Vegas strip and ranked the top 20 California neighborhoods Las Vegas visitors are likely from. We compared that list of neighborhoods to the approximate time it would take to drive to Victorville.

We found that 25% of the top zip codes are under an hour or less drive time to Victorville, which is already on the route they’d be taking to Vegas.
