Amtrak begins new second service out of Norfolk

Maybe the big money is in getting people in and out of the region, not in getting them to destinations within the region. I guess this is great news for anyone that works out of DC.

Let’s spend millions to build and millions per year on a mismanaged and underutilized light rail - great idea! We can make it go to the Naval Station! Never mind the fact people will still have to walk 2 miles from the stop to their destination, and drive their car to the initial stop.

We can't even get our roads right, let alone something like a rail system.

The average time and cost here per one lane of road is 1 year per mile @ $8 million.

You really think the incompetent, inefficient idiots running this place can get together and build a rail system? Did you see the disaster that is the light rail in Norfolk?

I wouldn't hold your breath.
