Riding the California high-speed rail in virtual reality

Aug 12, 2018

People wanting to ride California's high-speed railroad have been stymied by many project setbacks. But people attending the August 11th opening of the Salesforce Transit Center got the next best thing — a virtual reality experience simulating a high-speed rail journey, complete with stylish stations and train car designs.

The real high-speed rail is billions of dollars over-budget and nearly a decade behind schedule, with projected completion in 2033. The bullet train is projected to run from the Salesforce Transit Center in San Francisco to Los Angeles.
