So Much Money for So Little
Wonder how our local transit agencies can spend 50% of our transportation dollars on projects which support less then 5% of our daily trips?  Click Sound Transit Extreme Cost Light Rail to see the story of how Sound Transit, our regional transit agency, is determined to make this a reality by spending tens of billions of taxpayer dollars building a light rail system which will carry less than 1% of our regions daily trips.  There is, however, an alternate scenario based on providing the maximum new and improved transit service for each dollar spent, which I also describe at Bus Rapid Transit BRT When Costs Matter
