Amtrak station proposal

FresnoJune 6, 2014 

Yay! This is just what I need and want! I go up to the Bay Area at least once a month. I have to drive to Pleasanton to pick up BART and leave my car for one to two days. I would love to be able to get on Amtrak at the proposed north Fresno station and then pick up BART in Berkeley. I might not even need to own a sedan-sized car in the future!

This would be a more useful service for me than high-speed rail. I could go to events at the Gallo Center in Modesto, maybe connect to Walnut Creek for events there. If Marin and Sonoma counties ever get a rail system together that would connect, I could visit relatives in Santa Rosa without having to drive for four hours. Thank you, Mr. Perea!
