A recent Star Tribune article by Jim Anderson had an interesting update on the Gateway Corridor fiasco. According to the article, the plan is to run "along I-94" with "a BRT route -- or possibly light rail, if funding allows."
If funding allows?!?
That's the deciding factor -- for either a bus or a train -- how much money is available?
That's not how to make decisions.
If funding allows, use golden rails and call it the gold line. The Gateway Corridor has been renamed the Gold Corridor or the Giveaway Corridor.
But then, these are the people who wanted to put light rail trains on residential streets.
