Any chance of a HSR stop in MV?

HSR - everybody wants it, nobody bothers to think through the implementation details.

Daniel -- did you really write that first sentence or did you outsource it to some third-world sweatshop?

A High Speed Rail stop in Mountain View is not planned and is unlikely at this point.

A MV stop would be better than a PA stop. We are the heart and soul of SV

I think the high speed rail should start in San Jose, not San Francisco. The issues involved in cramming it up and down the Peninsula are not worth it. Increase CalTrain's existing weekend service and allow people to take CalTrain and then transfer to high speed rail in San Jose.

I think that is a really great suggestion, Catherine!
