      What role should rail play in CA’s transportation future? Should rail dollars be spent on projects that help us to get around the state or around our local communities? Is the high speed rail project a bold new initiative or colossal boondoggle? Is Orange County’s $300 million, four-mile Streetcar the future of local transportation or white elephant? Should Orange County push for an extension of LA’ s Metro to Santa Ana?  Should proposals such as Elon Musk’s Hyperloop be taken seriously? Is “fixed” rail the way to go given the coming autonomous vehicle (or self-driving cars and trucks) revolution?Panelists
