All Aboard! California High Speed Train

Posted on Posted in general, Human Geography

Here’s an interesting little story – California is going to build a high speed, bullet style train that will travel between San Fran and San Diego. The train is expected to take upwards of $40 billion to build, but you’ll be able to make a 600 mile trip in a tad under 4 hours for around $70. That’s probably half the time it would take by car. Given it isn’t expected until around 2020, the price is probably roughly what we can expect to pay per gallon of gas!
