Seattle Finally Gets Something Resembling Proper Public Transportation

All aboard: Light rail service starts Saturday:
"Seattle, can you hear that train a-comin'?

Thirteen year after voters approved the taxes to build it, Sound Transit's Central Link light rail opens for service Saturday. Trains will run every 71/2 minutes from stations along the 14-mile line between Westlake Center in Seattle and the massive, glass-encased station in Tukwila at South 154th Street and Tukwila International Boulevard."
I only hope this encourages similar projects and a larger rail network. I still can't believe how behind the U.S. has been at this for so long.
