They were talking about this in the 50's and nothing has happened except the talk. Now council president Pugh says the plan can be revived and at least run the light rail to the boulevard. WTF. Even at my advanced senescence I could out run such a contraption from the people mover to the boulevard and stand no more chance of getting mugged than riding and paying.

Detroit has no money to contribute to anything. All they bring to the table is a knife and fork. They stand ready to accept anything whether it survives long term or not. They would be happy to build something and let it sit or bleed resources.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda.....yada-yada.....same ol' jazz from decades ago.

They can't run a reliable bus service what makes them think.......ridiculous to say the least.

Use some common sense. Get back to basics.
