Letter of the Day

What are you waiting for?

I cheered when I read Our Views on Sunday, "Ending transportation planning gridlock." Ending traffic gridlock is not the only reason to build a light-rail rapid transit system. Individual mobility is another. I have lived in six large metropolitan areas, all of which have rail transit. In the Washington, D.C., area, I was able to travel to many destinations in D.C., Virginia and Maryland, and in the New York City area to the boroughs and Long Island, where I never would have ventured to drive for various reasons. It is amazing to me that the huge Tampa/St. Pete area, with all its suburbs, does not have rail transit already.
To those who oppose it, I say: What are you waiting for? Come into the 21st century! Joyce Neville Tampa
