I know you are a hired Mufi pro-rail person but don't you think you are going overboard with your claim that "Rail gives people an alternative way to get around without driving their cars'? Trains, as you may already know, can not go anywhere where there are no rail. It is a physical impossibility to "get arround" just riding a train whether here in Oahu or in the mainland. Are trains exempted from the laws of Physics? Are trains capable of going to many places where there are no rail?Lets try Logic 101 with Ben Ramelb!
Rail gives people an alternative way to get around without driving their cars. If they so choose, less cars shall be on the road. Less cars means a reduction in congestion.

The simple test is: would you rather ride your car 30 minutes from Kapolei to town on HOT lanes or wait for a bus to take you to a train station, spend 40 minutes on the train, then wait for a bus or grab a taxi to take you to work?

The SOLUTION is obviously HOT Lanes.
That's why Mufi has to spend so much on advertising to fool the public.

By Ledyard King, Gannett News Service
WASHINGTON — Commuters in Oakland County outside Detroit are spending less time stuck in traffic. And it's not because of new highways.
Using computers to adjust stoplight cycles, the Internet to give drivers real-time traffic updates and sensors to determine if bridges are icing up, this county of 1.2 million has been able to nimbly manage traffic flow like a juggler balancing balls.
Commuters in Detroit and in other parts of the country are benefiting from the use of "intelligent transportation systems," or ITS, that reduce tie-ups....

How to Forecast Traffic Jams Days in Advance
By Matthias Bartsch
Turns out, all you have to do to avoid traffic jams is embed wire sensors in the roads. That, combined with data from the past, allows German traffic experts to forecast up to 90 percent of all traffic jams.

I agree in another sense. We live in northeast PA and I know exactly what you are refering to. Years ago we used to have neighborhood block partys but as new people moved into the neighborhood, they didn't want to socialize with the rest of the neighborhood. They were more of its me not us. sure miss the block partys.
