King on the absurdity of MORE at-grade tram service

Image credit: Pixabay

IN HIS LATEST OP-ED, BILL KING asks a question that will be familiar to our readers:

If nearly every other major city has decided not to build their rail systems in the middle of their streets, why are we?

Indeed.

King doesn’t have space even to get into the traffic jams that will result from METRO’s at-grade tram plans for the Galleria and Downtown, which we also have discussed.

UPDATE: It is worth linking to this presentation King put together on problems with METRO’s LRT plans.
