    On the radio, Foxx makes case for the social justice of freeway removal.

  • The Caltrain issue is really getting old and tired. People must face the facts…we were mislead when we were told that Caltrain would not just be electrified but extended to the TTC. There should be no surprises that we have to wait another 15-20 years “because funding isn’t there.” The reality is that it was never high on the list. Phase 2 should always read “forget about it any time soon.” The Central Subway will never be extended past Chinatown. A new BART tube will never be built. Officials balk at the cost in today’s dollars but it ain’t going to get any cheaper down the road.

    Yup. The city taxpayers have just bought an over priced bus station when they were sold on the idea that rail would “someday” reach it. We would have been better off with a much more inexpensive option for that structure.

    Caltrains has always been the ugly stepchild when it comes to improvement funding.
