I hit the light rail in Portland and Minneapolis. I'm hooked! Too bad an attempt at SMART (the Sonoma-Marin Area Rapid Transit) was vetoed by the voters of Marin County.

I think Walt Disney was on to something with the monorail. What is taking so long, California?


I also hit the light rail in Minneapolis for the Summer Institutes. It was AWESOME! My favorite part - all the people hopping on with their bikes. Signs at the stations encouraged alternative forms of transportation including bikes. Think about all the pollution those people are preventing by using those two forms of transportation rather than cars.

Bravo to Minneapolis for being so environmentally friendly!

I took my first light rail train at the Summer Institutes in Minneapolis. Wish we had those everywhere! No worries about how to get out of the parking lot, where to turn around, where is a gas station, etc.
