14. it would create jobs,

but at a tremendous cost, including to the environment.

The train is estimated to take 2hrs and 38 mins from LA to SF.

That won't stop many from flying, imo, as a flight takes approx 50 mins from
lax to sfo, and you can hop right on bart at sfo. Plus, many want to go to oak, not sfo,
so that presents a different issue.

Its initial route would be from Bakersfield to somewhere in the central valley; but is
there secondary public transportation at the station? Not currently. So....

projected ridership is dubious.....
