Welcome to the future, Elite. Californian officials have just approved a high-speed bullet train that could eventually link LA and San Francisco, reducing travel time to two hours and 38 minutes while saving an estimated 324 pounds of CO2 emissions.

By comparison, the 400-mile drive takes between six to seven hours by car, and that is without traffic. Upon completion, this will be America’s first high-speed intrastate urban rail line.

The California high-speed rail has been in development for over 10 years. On Friday, July 6th, Governor Jerry Brown’s plan to begin construction was passed by a single vote in the state senate.

But don’t get excited yet. Construction is expected to be completed by 2018, and that is if everything stays on schedule.
