Well, yeah, but I was thinking of more the length of the system.

Really the pickings are slim as fair as rail goes at these metro sizes.

Not according to Brooking Inst. It's the second best since it gets you to job centers and downtown. If you live in central San Jose, it's awesome. If you live in rural/outlying areas, it's really horrible. The ridership is really bad, though.
