This is a tough call. The light rail in downtown San Jose never has many riders in it. But it looks good.

Knowing very little about this, I can say that the basic organization of the city - where all roads lead to Virginia St - is in favor of this. That is, a light rail running from UNR to Sierra Summit right down the middle of Virginia(!) would be one of those 90-10 things, where 90% of the utility will be gotten by 10% of the effort. Among other things this route will go within a block of the Amtrak station and the bus complex at 4th and Center(??).

If you have ever been to Portland OR, then you would know how a light rail makes a town a city. We should start out with two lines, Summit Mall to UNR and Boom-town to Sparks then add a spur to the airport. Nothing would set our city up to prosper in the future more than a project like this. We should have broken ground years ago. Better late than never.
