Re: PHOTOS: CALTRAN CALTRAIN IV

That's true, but again, an apples to apples comparison cannot be made. Rapid transit's costs are higher due to a more robust signal system and closely spaced stations. But those costs can be relative to the chosen signal system and how often we place stations. The same factors can come into play with commuter rail. Is the commuter rail utilizing high platforms? Is it electrified? What kind of headway will we expect to achieve? All these questions factor in to the cost.
