  1. Given the state’s move to prevent the county government from participating in the city’s streetcar project, would MCTS even be eligible to apply?

  2. Jeramey Jannene says:

    @Ed – It was a county board, not state, decision to prevent the county from participating. My understanding is that there is some question of the legality of such a budget amendment.

    The hole thing is a joke.
    I’m sick of paying for things that I don’t use.
    What is the final cost of this going to be????

  4. Ryan N says:

    We all pay for a lot of things we don’t use, it’s the price for living in a first world country (though we’re rapidly going away from that). In the end it’s being built, don’t want to pay for it? Move out of the city and just use a car.

    “the likely cooperation and fare interoperability between the two transit systems”

    Has this issue been discussed somewhere, or is it just assumed? I’ve wondered about this (particularly whether MCTS commuter value passes will work), and so have been watching the articles, but don’t remember actually seeing any reporting or quotes on it.

    For Roger–

    I probably do not use the sidewalk or road near where you live, Why should I pay for something I don’t use?

    Get a dictionary and look up “whole” and “hole”. Did you drop out of school at third grade?
