My bus today was 20 minutes late, and then proceeded to get stuck in traffic and travelled about one mile within a span of 20 minutes. Seattle’s infrastructure is an embarrassment.

The USís infrastructure is an embarassment. At least Seattle and Los Angeles are trying.

It would be behind NYC for sure, but Chicago lacks a cross-town connector like the Crenshaw Line could become.
Thatís something that shows on the map that I donít think metro has funding for. Not even to the purple line unless Iím mistaken. Theyíre going to study it in the hopes that they get money that they hadnít projected.
