ALBANY, N.Y. - Public meetings begin this week on proposals for high-speed passenger rail service in New York.

The first of six hearings is Tuesday at The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany.

The State Department of Transportation said five options are proposed in an environmental review required for federal funding. Under the options, trains would have top operating speeds of 79, 90, 110 and 125 miles per hour.

The costs of the plans range from $1.7 billion to $6.2 billion.
