Ryan points out that our fast growing, Forbes award winning, highly educated hometown is pulling up the rear when it comes to light rail. If I remember correctly, however, we had a pretty aggressive light rail plan that was pulled because the Federal Transit Administration let us know that we probably weren’t going to meet their estimates for minimum ridership. This was of course right before gas went to $4 a gallon, ridership on light rail exploded and a stimulus package came through looking to fund anything shovel ready. Timing can be well, unfortunate.
