1.25 hours + TSA time
High speed train reference time
| |said by hoyleysox:
True flying has advantages for long distances, like across the country. For medium distances, like San Diego to LA, trains are pretty competitive with driving with gas prices these days.
Okay, for this trip:
• 9 hours and 25 Minutes on the Train @ $57
• 1 hour and 15 Minutes + 1 hour for pat downs/total 2 hours 15 min. on plane @ $89
• 3 hours 10 min on a High Speed train @ $??
I have taken the Amtrack starliner to San Francisco, and just like Postal
says, we all ate our return trip tickets and flew back. A high speed train would need to be competitive in terms of price...which it should be considering it can carry 600+ passengers at a time.
I would take the HSR.
