Would like to know/clarification on the following statement, "could generate billions of dollars in benefits, including short-term economic stimulus and long-term increases in real estate values"...
1. How is this ANY different than HSR?
2. Seeing the trains daily, I ASSURE you they are MUCH more empty than full of riders therefore, WHERE is "ridership going up and up?
3. How can WE, AS A COMMUNITY, TRUST THIS/think of this any differently as we have been lied to over and over again, from the begining?
