It almost seems like a moot point to even say anything about this because they are changes that will happen no matter what, in some capacity, at least. But I've always believed that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Hourly service does not cut it. Cutting lines doesn't cut it. Mediocre service doesn't cut it. Rail is awesome, but unless you have a car or are willing to pay exorbitant rates for a taxi, how exactly does one plan to get there?
If it's important enough (read: if it's bothering you enough), say something about it already.
And maybe, maybe in thirty years we'll see less backwards movement. Photo via The Transit Coalition
