An argument against Charlotte’s current rail transit strategy
Posted on 25 Jan 2010 by Justin Ruckman
Awesome case made by Michael Gallis, of Michael Gallis & Associates, a “Strategic Planning Group and Real Estate Studio” in Charlotte, in support of a fully integrated rail transit plan, versus what is currently underway.
“Once among America’s smartest regional transit schemes, Charlotte’s commuter rail system could become the country’s most convoluted. Now planned as disconnected segments, it would be woefully underused.
We must reevaluate the current plan in favor of a fully integrated transit system intended to allow people to move around the region freely, without their cars.”
