Just to recoup the building costs (not including the operating costs) if the fares were $10 each way, everyone on the planet would have to take at least one ride on the Slow-Boat-to-Fresno "bullet train". With 30 Million People in California, everyone in California would have to take the train 227 times. That would mean that everyone in California would have to ride the train 3-4 times a year for their entire adult lifetimes just to recover the building costs.
But the fact is that probably the only people who will ride the train are the train employees and State workers on official business and California will have to pay them to take the ride.
You can’t be seriously objecting. I’ve already planned to ride your bullet train and have purchased my ticket ahead of time.
Who wouldn’t want to ride a 60+ billion boondoggle!
