Re: “Crises Precipitate Change

Transportation spending is welfare for construction cos. & unions. Other countries put together better systems for less- i.e. Curitiba Brazil, and Bogata's Transmileno. What do we get? 1/2 billion 3 mile Oakland airport - bart tram, Bart boondoggle, SMART - which is dumb. 400 million for "engineering studies" for high speed rail by McNerney while the Altamont is jammed & potholed- and for that money we could have had brt/bus rapid transit. And Ca. high speed rail - see Sacbee article by Tolmach of CRF. He's for a rail system but points out somehow our system is 3x european cost, and ridership estimates that have Merced boardings > Amtrak Manhattan.
