Central Subway Debate on KALW Radio Tonight

2:30 PM PDT on August 17, 2009

City Visions Radio will be debating the merits of the Central Subway project on their show tonight, asking whether the project is an innovation or a boondoggle.

The Central Subway project, which links Chinatown with the Third Street light rail and the Caltrain terminal at 4th and King, has its detractors, though most of the political class supports it. "With the Muni budget already in crisis," City Visions producers ask, "is it worth the cost?
Will enough people ride the Chinatown subway to make it worthwhile?"

Joining City Visions Radio host Lauren Meltzer to discuss the project are MTA's John Funghi, project manager for the Central Subway, David Schonbrunn, president of Transdef and a member of Save Muni, a new organization formed to oppose the current central subway plan, and Andrew Sullivan, chair of Rescue Muni, a riders’ advocacy and watchdog group.

Catch the show tonight at 7 pm on 91.7 KALW or listen live at www.kalw.org or www.cityvisionsradio.com
