High-Speed Rail Update

The California High Speed Rail Authority appears alive and well still (thank goodness). The Chronicle has a short article in today’s paper (read it here) about Bay Area transportation leaders backing two high-speed train rail routes into the region, one heading north through Pacheco Pass into the San Francisco area and the other running through the Altamont Pass to head into the East Bay.

In the same story, the author mentions that Governor Schwarzenegger wants to postpone the $10 billion bond measure to help pay for high-speed rail service between the Transbay Transit Center in Rincon Hill (downtown San Francisco) and Union Station in Los Angeles to the 2010 or 2012 ballot instead of the currently planned 2008 ballot appearance.
