Agency picks Pacheco route for bullet train

pacheco_route.jpgA state agency today chose the Pacheco Pass route among two possible ways bullet trains of the future might reach the Bay Area from southern California. (Click the graphic for a larger map.)

Winners: San Jose and the Peninsula, along with landowners along the east-west route across the Pacheco Pass — a route that roughly parallels State Hwy. 152. Losers: Landowners in Stockton, Tracy, and along the spurned Altamont route.

Bullet train decisions due

    San Jose deserves the route much more than the Central Valley.. Silicon Valley is the largest business in the state outside Hollywood (or is it larger? I don’t know) and this will be great for the millions of people who live in Santa Clara County. It seems to just make more economic sense this way. Bring on the lawsuits! But eventually we will have a train, dammit !
