This will work if the travel times aren't the only thing they cut in half.
I used to www.aco.ca drive up to Manchester from London every 2-3 weeks coz my ex was from there, and journies by car generally always costed same as a one way ticket for 1 person.

Faster travel times mean faster turnover means more passengers per hour.
Hopefully there will be enough flow of people that the prices can drop down.
