Stop pushing high-speed rail. It will not bring workers to Fresno for housing. The July 30 article in The Bee examines the question of whether workers will leave their $3,000-per-month San Jose apartments for cheaper Fresno housing.
The article suggests the rail fare from Fresno to San Jose would be around $63. Organizations pushing HSR don't mention the ticket fees are for one-way travel. A monthly round trip will be $2,520, and when you add the $2,100 estimated monthly mortgage payment on the $300,000 home, you get $4,620 per month.
Why move to 110-degree Fresno,when you can stay in San Jose and not suffer a two-hour daily train ride?
