Two thumbs up! I commend the visionary leadership over the decades that brought this, Trax and Frontrunner to Utah. They dramatically enhance the quality of life here. This is a truly great system.

A TIGER Grant. Isn't that Obama's stimulus? Shovel-ready, jobs created or saved, GREEN corridor, la-de-dah.
I can walk that two miles in 30 minutes.
What's the fare? Don't know yet.
Where are the cars? Not available yet.
This sounds like Obamacare on wheels.
But hey, $37 million of federal money is bringing the bacon home, right?
Wait. Isn't the federal government broke?

So there is a bus (the number 21) that runs up and down the same corridor on 2100 South, services the Trax station along with points west and east and the speed limit there is 40 mph. The street car is going to speed along at 25 mph. This is what UTA calls progress?

And what is with the ugly poles that hold up the overhead wires for the street car that will operate in this corridor? I hope this is not the finished product. As long as UTA is spending the money why did they not purchase a decorative pole like the ones used along the 400 South Trax line? If I lived in this area I would be upset with these ugly power poles.
