One solution for San Diego airport overcrowding: high speed rail

A different sort of solution to San Diego International Airportís seam-busting future came to light Wednesday night: the high-speed rail train.

It is no secret that, no matter how many additions and facelifts the airport gets, its single runway can handle only so many planes. A day will come when the airport will face more passengers than planes.

Building facilities to shift passengers to high-speed trains is a billion dollar expense, but planners believe that 1.5 million airport passengers a year could opt for high-speed trains over planes.

The full article appears on the San Diego Union Tribune website.
