It's clear the NCTD hates all of us.
TREES: The NCTD cut down a bunch of beautiful old growth trees in Leucadia, link.
QUALITY OF LIFE: The NCTD does nothing to beautify it's scorched earth dead zone in Leucadia,
COASTER: While I support the Coaster and ride it often, the train horns are overly loud and the Coaster kicks up huge plums of dust in the Leucadia dead zone that leaves a layer of grim over the coast highway corridor. Breathe deep, that dusty air is some quality air pollution.
COASTER COPS: If you live east of Vulcan Ave in Leucadia and want to walk to the Pannikan to get a cup of coffee you cannot cross the train tracks. You are too stupid to look both ways for the train and cross safely on your own. If you attempt this you will be fined $200 by the Coaster Cops who cruise the tracks in a gas guzzling SUV. It's better that you get into your car and drive to the Pannikan even though as the crow flies you only live 1/4 mile away. Yes, the NCTD is all about saving gas and getting cars off the road!
SPRINTER: The Sprinter is a $478 million giant taxpayer boondoggle which won it a Golden Fleece award.
BUS: The NCTD bus stops are horrible. Most of them don't have benches, but even the ones with benches are craptacular. The bus stops are notorious for not having schedules.
Now you can't take your bike on the train! news link What is the point of the NCTD? Why didn't the NCTD design their cars to accommodate bikes? What the hell are you supposed to go once you get to the Coaster station? Walk? Take the bus (that probably doesn't go where you need to be and has no schedule posted)? Take a taxi? Arrgh!!!
