Lower-Speed Rail

New, 2 comments

California's proposed high-speed train between San Francisco and LA may take half an hour longer than originally planned and cost "substantially more" than the $68 billion now estimated. The train would take about three hours and eight minutes, not two hours and forty minutes as initially suggested, according to a panel of high-speed rail experts. The project would take about thirty years to complete, and experts also warned that other transportation technologies could surpass high-speed rail during this time. [SF Business Times]
