Hannemann's pro-rail shills in this website just cannot stomach the fact that Kobayashi's EzWay makes Hannemann's rail project obsolete.
EzWay makes the commute more convenient and quicker compared to the inconvenience of bus-train-bus transfer with rail and the slow speed of a train which is aggravated by the many stops along the way.
EzWay is a boon for taxpayers who won't have to face the hefty property tax increase needed to fund an exhorbitantty expensive rail project. But most of all,
EzWay would relieve and later eliminate traffic gridlock which rail transit can not accomplish. In spite of the fact that rail can't relieve traffic gridlock, rail uses traffic congestion to justify the building of Hannemann's rail project. The pro-rail people call it "alternative". Well, with EzWay this so-called alternative or rail transit won't be needed anymore because EzWay will bring relief to traffic congestion.

Still waiting for proof...
I'm just a 35 year veteran of the local bus system who wholly support the rail project....get over yourself.

If you're a bus driver, you support rail because of job security reasons, like all other union guys. You'll be needed to drive feeder buses to and from rail stops every morning--as you watch poor residents jump through many hoops to get to and from work using rail.
You probably also want your jobs to be a little easier since current bus riders will be using rail as well, lightening your bus driving duties.
Are these the reasons you want rail?
If so, you should want it to help reduce traffic and commute times--which it will not due to low usage.

Why support the rail if you can't get on during peak periods. The City AA shows there will be 15000 commuters per hour wanting to get on the train that will carry only 6000 commuters per hour (4000 standees, 2,000 seated). Despite spending $7.0 Billion for the rail!

Make it even bigger since, as you say, it will be so popular.
