Should high-speed train tracks be raised onto an aerial platform over Castro Street?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Daniel DeBolt

"I think it would be a good idea if traffic could go underneath. It would be like the monorail in Vancouver, which is a great system."

Jasmine Johal, West Lafayette, Indiana

"I like it as it is. It brings the old and the new together. There's something romantic about it. Then again, you do have to cross that track, and it gets jammed."

Oguz Olcay, Sunnyvale

"It wouldn't be an eyesore because (they) could make it look classy. It would save time for cars wanting to cross."

Adrienne Hasan, Mountain View

"I think it would be a benefit, actually. It seems that the other options would be too expensive. I don't see where we would get the money for that."

Salina Romero, Mountain View

"I don't like the idea. Right now it feels a bit like a small European city."

Elena Demenchukova, Moscow
