Lots of people are taking light rail in Phoenix. However its not the usual work trip.
Metro found that only 27 percent of the patrons ride the light rail to and from work. In many large cities, commuters make up the dominant share of riders. The survey found that sports fans, shoppers and people going to and from the airport or cultural events form the largest group.~~~
Folks in Dallas are worried that the light rail line will make Richardson grow so fast that traffic will be horrendous.
Lots of development is going forward in Richardson, with much of it related to DART's rail service. But there's a downside to this good fortune: increased pressure on roadways. North Central Expressway is getting the big pounding.I'm sure its all the transits fault.
