Good article but all LRT enthusiasts are missing the basic point that LRT hasn't any support among the general public. Fighting about two way streets or one way streets or King or Main or whatever is just a futile argument when the precondition for spending millions of dollars has yet to be met.

Ummmmmm, ok. Have you been to the public information sessions or talked to any of the planners? Because I really think you're wrong about that. I saw full houses at all the downtown PIC's I attended and 90-something percent approval on the survey for B-Line LRT.

I went to the recent kick-off for the A-Line on the mountain and that was a different story, but that line is only beginning to be planned and its funding is more uncertain. In the next few years as we go through another cycle of rising gas prices, I expect to see more interest in rapid transit even on the mountain.

In the lower city, people not only support but demand better transit.
