10 million light rail rides

Looks like Light rail’s 10 millionth ride has happened. What’s interesting about this is that it wasn’t projected to happen until August of 2006. Of course, I’m sure Dick Day will still just say that the same numbers he thought were unrealistic in 2004 were actually deliberately low to make sure they’d exceed expectations. Too bad it’s taken this long to get even the smallest portion of the grand railcar system this city used to have.

We’re finally moving along despite Owatonna’s own ambassador of “everyone in their own car” transportation policy.

    Dick Day is also the same politician who advocated for turning off the ramp meters for a month, and then when they were, realized that the ramp meters mostly serve suburbanites in the far flung suburbs. People living in the city and the inner ring had much faster commutes. People living in places like Owatonna had 10 to 15 minutes added to their commutes. Isn’t that hilarious?
