New Bullet Train Plans Delayed

According to the Los Angeles Times, California’s $64 billion bullet train has been delayed by three years. Could this mean that Elon Musk's Hyperloop might end up beating the bullet train to market?

California will need to double down on support of the bullet train by digging deeper into the state's wallet and accepting a three-year delay in completing the project's initial leg, a new business plan for the 220-mph system shows. Rail planners have turned their construction plans upside down, attempting to fit the mega-project within the state's limited budget.
