Reading the comments following the article, it doesn't look like it has a lot of public support. Well at least not from Chronicle readers. I just hope it alleviates traffic, rather than create more of it.

Never confuse those idiots with the public at large. Then again the public at large isn't a whole lot more intelligent as an entity.

1.46 billion down the drain, even though I live right next to the hillcroft terminal.

As a UH employee, I'm disappointed that the University line isn't included in the planning.

It's OK. Gives them time to figure out how to get it down Westheimer instead.

"Down the drain"? I think not. Light rail is long overdue here. A city this size needs decent public transportation and I think this is a good beginning.

I am not impressed with light rail. The trains move at a slow rate of speed, and the cars are cramped.
