Why do the train boosters make such BS arguments. This train to Vegas has nothing to do with supply chain or ”good paying” jobs, in my judgement.

Quote —
“Talked to Secretary (Pete) Buttigieg three or four times on this,” Sisolak said. “I went back to Washington to talk to him about the train. He understands how important it is. Not just on the transportation end, but it frees up the supply chain on that corridor there. It creates a lot of good-paying jobs, and it’s going to keep our economy going.”


Have you ever been to Las Vegas on I-15? Have you ever come back from Las Vegas on I-15? Have you ever gone up on a holiday weekend? Have you ever come back on a Sunday afternoon? TheI-15 is a critical often jammed and delayed logistics corridor.

Short and medium distance rail passenger services primarily draw from auto trips reducing demand for vehicle trip space on the interstate, reducing traffic volumes which can even lead to flow rate collapse, and reduced peak carrying capacity of the freeway lanes. This would then be saving those trucks hundreds of thousands of annual hours of avoidable delay.

Not having the trucks crawling along in gridlock actuall saves things like fuel and time. Which save a lot of money for operators, shippers and ultimately consumers, and by improving productivity, it helps to create good paying jobs, in addition to the jobs in rail construction and rail operations, which usually pay better than McDonald's...

This is kind of how a lot of this sort of stuff works... Which is why we're still not living in the caves, and have Fedex and UPS bringing us all kinds of cool stuff we can afford to have shipped... So how exactly are those "BS" arguments?
