California high speed rail to nowhere – from nowhere
If Florida was right in turning down billions in Federal dollars to build high speed rail between Tampa & Orlando due to the projected low ridership and high state operating costs, California should be doubly right in turning down money to build a line between Fresno and Bakersfield.
People, look at where these first two stations would be located!
This is like putting high speed rail in Florida between Winter Haven and Okeechobee.
No one goes to Fresno or Bakersfield unless they have to.
