  •  The 99 corridor is a better route (2+ / 0-)

    because it picks up the population centers and the universities in the central valley, all of which have substantial unmet demand for better transportation options.

    There is no way that building subways in LA - full of tectonic fun and dense population - is cheaper. That 405 project you mention is probably at least as expensive and challenging as getting through from San Fernando to Bakersfield. But the good news is, LA subways are happening too, as it needs to.

    There is plenty of demand for LA-SF transportation, and for many sub routes in between, like Fresno-LA and Bakersfield-LA.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
