Looks like drastic cuts at Caltrain so Santa Cruz can have a dinner train. I wonder whom the SCCRTC will rob to come up with the 250,000.00 they promised the CTC commissioners this week.

It will come from Metro, Library, more job cuts and loss of services. I can see the reason for wanting this, but I don't see the reason for doing it. I'm lining up, already, for the lawsuit line--"That d--n train ran over my foot!"
