Default Re: Rail Transit

In 50 years, SEVERAL trains will be a small piece of an overall transit solution that will include buses, more roads for cars, higher density nodal living environments, and zoning practice rooted in social science, not political gain.

Of course the train is a good idea. So is a ferry system on the South Shore, and the West Side of Big Island. So is a road over/under Pearl to Ewa. If you think a shortage of gasoline will eliminate the POV, you are incorrect. ALL roads will need to be widened or DECKED in the coming 50 years to accomodate the inevitable increase in usage. There needs to be a MAJOR increase in large-scale, ocean-access infrastucture in the State of Hawaii.

Do not be so shortsighted as the think that this or that solution is the whole story. They must ALL be utilized.
