Gov. Lingle’s Legacy and the Honolulu Rail Project

Today on the Say Yes to Rail blog, was an interesting post regarding Gov. Lingle’s reading of the City’s transit plans. Here is a selection of Doug Carlson’s blog post:

While “No Rubber Stamp” Pledge is No Surprise, Lingle’s Long-Term Legacy Rides on OKing FEIS

We have to believe the Governor will conclude that the alternatives to an elevated project – alternatives that were thoroughly vetted, notwithstanding the anti-rail crowd’s assertions – all are inferior to the City’s plan.

Grade-separated transit is the only travel mode that completely avoids traffic congestion, which is why it’s the only way to achieve the project’s goals of providing fast, frequent and reliable transportation…

Surely the Governor can appreciate that central fact about the City’s rail transit plan.
