Support a good system
Your failure to endorse the expansion of light rail is disappointing [“Reject Proposition 1’s tax for light-rail expansion,” editorial, Sept. 28]. We need better transportation choices as soon as possible. Buses will never move people as well as a separate rail system.
And if we are to address local jobs and greenhouse-gas emissions, we should be looking at the most efficient system possible.
You say we can build separate lanes for buses. Like those on Highway 520 or Interstate 405 that are often stopped during rush hour? We can see now how that will be working in 20 years.
Let’s support a good system. It will mean better jobs and increased mobility.
