All aboard

After riding our local Metrolink yesterday,  I came upon an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch regarding their concern about funding and possible budget cuts.  On that note, here are just some of the articles I’ve come across the last few months that are a bit more positive.

This article, “More Riders on Board with Amtrak” by Elisa Crouch at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch talks about how Amtrak is planning to increase spending to reduce delays.

Meanwhile, according to an article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch via the Associated Press,  “Kansas City again considers light rail“. Here’s hoping.

To go along with that, this article was the beginning of a repeated story, “March Driving Down For 1st Time Since 1979:Governement” from Reuters.

Finally, over at the Wall Street Journal came this article, “Gas Prices Push Commuters to Try Out Mass Transit” by Joseph P. White.

And away we go-
