    Interesting story about Golden Gate Transit’s bus transfer center and the Smart Train in San Rafael not fitting together that nicely.  The suggestion is made for moving the transit center adjacent to the train stop for the long term and turning that transit center into housing.  A better use would be to turn it into commercial businesses and offices — that way commuters will come to work by train or bus, and customers will use it as a destination.  Studies are showing that building jobs around transit is even more important than building residential housing practically on top of it.
