New Phoenix Light Rail Makes Muni Look Bad

View Comments (


    Phoenix just opened its new light rail line back in December, and ridership's been nearly twice what they were expecting.

    Looks like they really did it right: Streetsblog's video shows nicer shelters than anything we have, ground-floor boarding, a working smartcard system (in contrast to Muni's ongoing floundering with Translink), easy payment (in contrast to Muni's tourist-flummoxing signs and machines), and bike racks on the trains! Yes! BIKE RACKS INSIDE TRAINS.

    We now wish our daily commute to work could detour through Arizona.
