Light Rail: Warming up to the concept

It’s no secret that I strongly advocate mass transportation, including light rail. I am happy to read into today’s Deseret News that most of those polled in a recent survey about light rail would gladly pay more taxes to expand the current system to include the major portion of the Wasatch Front.

Finally, people are increasingly catching on. No doubt that the rising fuel costs have some bearing on that awareness.

Transportation alternatives, including expanding commuter rail routes, can be viewed on the Utah Department of Transportation‘s website. A spokesperson quoted in the article encourages folks to look at the options and voice their opinion.

Elected officials are also encouraged to listen to their constituents on the issue. Now that’s a concept!
