>private company is paying for it
This is the only true HSR project in America that gets me excited. How can one company get everything so right when everyone else here screws up even the most basic of projects?

>Move to a carless community
>Great, there's no car, you can take bus and ferry to reach nearby urban area and can also choose to take bus or bike within the community to anywhere you want.
>Oh but let's also allow some golf kart running in the community as they are not cars and there's are probably some need for them to travel inside the community that are not satisfied by bus, with a quota system as one won't want their community being flooded with carts
>It now cost 300,000 USD to buy a fucking used go cart with the quota included or cost 1000 USD for monthly rent, just for travelling in between the few facilities in the community and residential area, when there are extensive bus services that are serving all of those facilities directly.
