California needs high-speed rail

Re “Suburban growth studies make a case for high-speed rail project” (Viewpoints, Jan. 21): Thank you, Bruce Maiman. It is nice to hear a calm, reasoning voice on the subject of high-speed rail. We Californians should get serious about our need for a passenger train transportation system to ease the congestion on our highways. Let’s face the fact that our population is growing and will continue to do so. We should have other ways to move around the state besides automobiles. Numerous studies have been done over years, all pointing to the need for a rail system in California. We have the money to start, so let’s get going.
