Passenger trains in the San Joaquin Valley are a good idea

The San Joaquin Valley to Sacramento tracks once were a main passenger route through the state, dating to the turn of the century. But our collective love affair with cars made trains seem obsolete. They’re not.

In reality, the automobile, convenient and always at the ready, is a main cause of climate change. We must find ways to wean ourselves. Certainly, electric vehicles are part of the solution. Autonomous vehicles hold the promise of revolutionizing urban travel. But rail must be part of our future.
