There are no transit districts anywhere in the country that pay their own way, let alone make a profit. They are all taxpayer supported.
Gov. Browns high-speed rail system will cost the taxpayer to build and maintain. This is going to be Browns legacy, a failed rail system that will never be paid for. We are in a drought. Why not take the money for the train and build new or raise existing dams so we can store more water in dry years? Dams make money in the form of water sales and hydroelectric (green) power.
Makes a lot more sense to me than dumping billions of dollars down a bottomless pit.
