Caltrain and HSR – A Match Made in Heaven

According to SFAppeal, politicians are urging the California High Speed Rail Authority and Caltrain to partner together in order to build a “blended system that integrates high-speed rail with a 21st century Caltrain”.

While Caltrain and the HSR have had their issues in the past, with right of way issues and rail improvements along the peninsula corridor, this seems like a no-brainer. Starting with Caltrain’s massive budget and funding issues, they should be looking to partner with anyone and everyone who approaches them. The investment is desperately needed and the HSR funding can go a long way to improve the budget strapped railway.
