WE NEED MORE TRAINS
Â· In 2006 California Voters passed the Proposition 1B Bond Measure which included $160 million for additional intercity passenger rolling stock.
Â· Many of our intercity trains are full and we need more equipment to satisfy growing demand.
Â· With gasoline at $4.00 per gallon more and more people are looking for alternatives.
Â· BUT the state Department of Finance says the new cars are not needed, based on a flawed sample of ridership on a few trains.
We the undersigned call on the Governor to direct Caltrans to proceed with the equipment acquisition.
