In the SF Bay area there is NO WHERE to build a corridor for high speed anything. The current state plan calls for bussing people from the Bay Area to the central valley to pick up a train. The top speed for the train proposed in California turns out to be less than 60 mph due to all of the right of ways and towns up and down the valley.
this map is some idiot’s wet dream
“In the SF Bay area there is NO WHERE to build a corridor for high speed anything.”
Sure there is. It can be built along the right of way that Cal Train uses, it can be built elevated on top of that right of way, and it can be built under that right of way just the same as BART is built under a portion of that right of way. It could also be tunneled across the Bay to the new terminal near AT&T Park.
So long as it isn’t done with tax money I personally don’t care where they build it. Or not. It’s California - let them stew in traffic.
That ought to be a real scream at 200 MPH.
