Los Angeles, CA – May 29, 2017 Los Angeles Business Journal
While many local business have scored contracts to work on California’s high-speed rail project, costs have stoked opposition. So the Business Journal asks:
Should California’s $64 billion high-speed rail project move forward?
Jonathan Port, PermaCity CEO says:
No. Because it’s functionally obsolete for the California decentralized infrastructure. I’d rather take my car – or an Uber or Lyft ride – onto a high-speed guideway that drops me off at a central point in San Francisco and then be able to use that car. For $64 billion we could blanket the entire state with this type of system.
