Mass Transit Debate at the Statehouse
I've had many, many posts showing how mass transit is just a huge waste of taxpayer dollars. I just cannot fathom the lack of reason on this. It's like the windmills in Europe- They don't really do what it is thought they do, but they make people feel good.
I loved hearing Marc Fisher of the Indy Chamber on Abdul's show this morning. he and I debated light rail a few months ago, and today Fisher returned to his talking point: We can't build our way out of congestion. His solution? Build light rail?
Pardon me, but isn't that building your way out of congestion?
And what about the average 80% losses on the average mass transit system? Should we just sweep those under the rug?
Let's hope this doesn't get out of committee.
Look for a master post linking all of my previous mass transit posts. Too much to re-hash and re-research.
