Learn more about California Bullet Train
In Jan 2015, the State of California broke ground on the nation’s largest high-speed rail project. If completed, the railway would connect Los Angeles and San Francisco with bullet trains traveling up to 220-miles-per-hour. The railway was initially projected to cost $33 Billion but that figure has since been raised to a total cost of $98 Billion – making it the most expensive rail project in the history of the U.S. Proponents say the railway will revive the economies of cities in central California and have long term environmental benefits. Opponents argue that the ballooning costs will ultimately doom the project – leaving California taxpayers with miles of abandoned pieces of track. See recent California bullet train news
