The Sprinter update!
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
The Sprinter opened for service to the public in March of 2008, was the lowest cost per mile rail project in the U.S.A., moves a lot more people than the bus routes it replaced using fewer employees, and has an excellent on-time performance record.
On another, somewhat unrelated note, the Board of the North County Transit District voted on September 16th to reduce fares to the riding public on a promotional basis for the year 2011. It’s nice to have a public agency reduce fares instead of increasing them!
Poway Roger says:
As I recall, the Sprinter was quite a bit over budget (Correct me if I am wrong here). While the “Final” budget might be more than the actual tab, when you keep adjusting figures up and up, of course the Sprinter will look like a financial boom.
But let’s look at the original price tab and then compare it to the final tab and then ask yourself if it was really worth it.
DUDEBRO, sucks to be called out by a real conservative who has the balls to speak his principles.
