In recent letters, I’ve read the opinions of several against any future light electric rail.
We have Measure D funds going to more widening of Highway 1 (you will hate what that looks like) the government has provided over $1 million for two electric buses. In the blink of an eye, the highway will be maxed out, buses will be stuck on it and if rail is foregone for a trail only, our problem of gridlock will worsen every year. The population here has tripled since 1964. I can understand the concerns of light rail here but the line is all of ours so it should be used in the best possible manner for all. Don’t forget also the deadly flood and killer earthquake that shut us off from the outside world, and which the rails continued to provide transport. We need the rail to be returned to service for residents and visitors alike.
