A study of California's high-speed rail plans predicts that the bullet train will boost incomes by $701 million. According to the study by the University of California at Irvine, high-speed rail in the state will also create 127,000 permanent jobs in the Los Angeles-Orange County area by 2035. "Cities with a high-speed rail station will grow and transition into hubs of commerce," said Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle, who is chairman of the California High-Speed Rail Authority.
