Last Stop Los Angeles

New, 18 comments

Another weekend, another smattering of news on our high-speed rail future. And sadly, that future will not take us to Anaheim and their fancy new transit hub, as the planners for the HSR system have nixed Anaheim from their planned route for now. Via the OC Register: "The rail agency has been looking at ways to make the $68-billion line more cost efficient and confirmed this week that new plans show the southern terminus at L.A.'s Union Station, potentially saving $6 billion. Instead of getting to Anaheim at speeds of up to 220 mph via train, travelers would have to take slower trains to make the 30-mile trek south of Los Angeles." [OC Register]
