Just a Little Off the Rails

A story of friends who refuse to pick up each other's calls: the Transbay Joint Powers Authority and the California High Speed Rail Authority. The former's still unhappy about the demands placed by the former, namely that the Transbay Terminal accommodate a whopping 12 trains per hour— a demand that, to hear the TJPA say it, dropped out of nowhere. Their defense: "We are building a train that has the capacity to hold not just the riders in 2030, but beyond that. They are trying to fit the high-speed trains of the future in a very limited space, and we're telling them that's not adequate." [SFBG]
