The only way I would see this type of train making any money in California is if cars could be carried on the train or if cars could be rented at the high speed rail stations. That is the only way that I would ride it, because public transportation(buses, light rail) will hardly get you anywhere in a reasonable amount of time in CA, and taxi cabs are expensive. I have used public transportation in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, and New York City, and it was so nice to be able to get around, in a minimal amount of time, without dealing with driving in traffic and parking. Perhaps large California cities should be invsesting more money on local public transportation before spending billions on high speed rail.
