California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHRSA) Expect Millions
A recent study conducted by Cambridge Systematics, sponsored by the Metropolitan Transportation Comission, predicts that ridership on the proposed 700 mile high-speed electric train between Sacramento and San Diego (with stops in San Francisco and Los Angeles along the way) would reach 2.5M daily trips This would translate into more than 100 million in 2030. This is a much higher number than had been previously predicted. Revenues from such a ridership level would be approximately $3 billion annually.

Good news for the environment, our congested highways, and our frazzled nerves.
