    • Dear Tomas,
      I agree with you.I liked the part where you said” This stood out for me because the landowners do not know what could they be missing out on having the bullet train pass by their city they could make money on making t-shirts on some kind of business that would bring money to their pocket and more people would come visit the city because they have a bullet train in their backyard.” I really like this because it shows that people who have issues with the bullet trains have a way to benefit from it so you took out the counter argument. We should have a bullet train here in California because everyone can benefit from it. We can have faster transportation to other parts of California without taking an airplane. This leaves me with a question. How safe is the bullet train and how dangerous is it? Compared to other modes of transportation, what are the benefits and defects of it?

    • My name is Micheal,
      I agree with the statement “building the bullet train will affect everyone statewide and it will benefit everyone by making the traffic flow smoother and it will give everyone a fourth option of transportation”. Within my city I see that more and more people are using other forms of transportation but a good chunk are reliant on the CTA or the Chicago Transit Authority which provide buses and trains for the citizens of Chicago. My associates and I are attempting to reach out to said CTA and asking if high school students in the state of Chicago could receive a UPASS which the CTA already provides for high school students. We were wondering if you have any data on the amount of students who rely on public transportation as we can use said data to support our thesis that the students require a UPASS.
