I have been attending the SMART board meetings since October 2018. I have learned so much about systems and processes and I have really, nothing but praise for the General Manager and staff as well as the board (all elected officials). There are many moving parts, pun intended, to building a railroad - the grant process alone is staggering, much more the actual infrastructure and regulations mandated by different agencies. At the risk of sounding like Pollyanna, this is a railroad the citizens of Marin and Sonoma counties can be very proud of. I have no doubt that we will build the bridge to Healdsburg and on to Cloverdale. If one can imagine, connecting to Suisun, through Shellville and a connection to the raceway and then to the East Bay and truly points beyond. - Well, it is so exciting, and I will see this not only in my lifetime but also perhaps in the next ten years!
To those that still desire bus lanes and other nonsense - go ride a train. It’s fabulous.
