Letters: Backing down from the bullet train

March 30, 2013

Re "High-speed rail's strongest backers have concerns," March 27

It is time to put a bullet into California's bullet train. What is the justification, in the present difficult economy, to build a staggeringly expensive rail line that only a small percentage of the people will ever use and, according to this article, likely won't be a true high-speed system?

The state should instead take a fraction of the $68 billion for this project and upgrade airports and highways. In the long term, California should invest in research to develop a cost-effective high-speed transportation system for the 21st century.
