Fast Train vs. Commuter Train

New, 1 comment

"That a successful effort to get car-dependent Californians to embrace mass transit could be derailed by another transportation project may strike some as ironic." So writes the AP in a story about an L.A. commuter-train-and-townhouse development that took a lot of mayoral pull and years to get done. Now, to make way for the bullet train, the high-speed rail authority says either the townhouses have to get the wrecking ball, or the Metrolink train station. Oh, the humanity. [AP]
