Light Rail

Sooner or later, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky will build rail transit (see "Railroaded" in the summer issue). Regional rail transit initiatives seldom win on the first ballot.

Nationally, out of dozens of votes, only Dallas and Charlotte voted for rail on the first try.

Dallas is nearing completion of the nation's most extensive and highest-capacity light rail system. After the first two lines opened there, Dallas residents voted 3-to-1 to speed up the construction. Many Dallas suburbs that originally fought light rail are now begging for stations. Houston opened its first light-rail line this year, and several more lines are being planned.

Dallas ... Houston ... together, the center of the world's petroleum industry. What do they know that we don't?
