From what I have seen, people driving private vehicles, green means go, yellow means go, red means go. So don't make people driving private vehicles saints.  (May 4, 2011 | post #15)

Soucheray: There goes the train, and here comes the skywa...

I agree that the current light rail line, works in some ways. After all, it serves an important purpose when the Twins or Vikings play. It eases congestion in Minneapolis. But how is the St. Paul line going to work for these types of events? There are not going to be park and ride lots any where along the line. There are no airports along the line. There are no Mall of America's on this line. All there is going to be is a big headache for the commuters of University Avenue and the University of Minnesota. No one in their right mind is going to ride the train to nowhere for 45 minutes. Might as well take the current route 16 is you're looking for an extremely slow ride to either downtown. This line serves no purpose. I am a transit supporter, after all, its cheaper than driving but I'm dead against this project. It's a waste of taxpayer money. It's going to serve the deadbeats who are on welfare and commit crimes and can't afford the very extremely high $1.75 fare. This project does not work for St. Paul. Its just a legacy project for out current politicians who can say "I helped linked the two downtowns," when in reality, the two downtowns are already linked by several bus routes, one of them only taking a 20 minute trip down Highway 94.  (Apr 3, 2011 | post #92)

Cut the pay of the over-payed administrative team - both Met Council and Metro Transit - people, may I add who have never taken a bus & don't have a clue as to what is going on with the system - and save a fortune.  (Mar 27, 2011 | post #108)

MnSCU students to march to protest tuition hikes

What are you smoking? Higher education is not right. I consider it a privilage to attend college. You have to find ways to afford college. It shouldn't have to be the taxpayers who foot the bill for students to attend school for free. I work my butt off to attend colege and by no means, take it for granted.  (Feb 16, 2011 | post #39)

Very funny. I didn't realize working full time, running my own little business, attending school, have a place of my own, and actually being a working member of society makes me a crackhead. Learned something new today.  (Aug 24, 2010 | post #101)

If you say any idiot can drive a bus, then why aren't you behind the wheel? And then we'll see how much of an idiot you are when you get "the bus driver experience." By that, I mean, put up with the idiots who ride the bus & cause nothing but trouble. You wouldn't last an entire shift...  (Aug 24, 2010 | post #58)
