I don't believe, for one second, that everyone is a fan of this system. In fact, I am really glad that they are not. We are free to make decisions and observations and that is a wonderful thing. (oh yeah, Happy 4th of July to you on Friday!) I am very aware that some people think way too much money is allocated for light rail. I am also aware that many people feel public transportation is a necessary part of our lives. One thing is for sure, light rail it IS coming, it is a reality and we should probably figure out how it can be used effectively. The timing of this project is actually playing right in to the hands of transit lovers. The price of gas doesn't appear to be coming down any time soon and with the growth plans of ASU, I seriously doubt the prices for parking are going to be considered a bargain in the near future.
Here at the Rail Life blog, we have not had a lot of people against the system but have had a lot of positive reaction from many people. So, don't be scared to voice your opinion, we allow equal opportunity for those opposed just as we enjoy hearing from people that are excited about the changes that are upon us. Once RailLife.com is up and running, there promises to be a ton of great info for all..
