Sigh.... Peninsula not in my backyard. I've always in favor of doing it over Altamont;lots of people live in this area and commute to peninsula.
Its just like BART back then, Santa Clara doesn't want BART in the beginning, and now we are paying dear price for it.

With all the frogs, snakes, butterflys, bugs, weeds, politician's, you name it, we have around California it will be years before this project get underway(if at all)...

By the time this project comes out of the courts all the bond money will be in the pockets of the legal and political types...

Stand by for more bonds to be floated on the ballot...

Let the fun begin!!!

Just like the BARTD, we will pay for this costly project for years, but may not be able to use it. Look at Livermore, who were promised a BARTD Station, and have been paying for it for over 35 years, yet still have nothing, even when they are building extensions to Santa Clara, and to the Oakland Airport.
Recently BARTD tried to sell off the land where the station was to be built.

When someone yelled " You Lie!" in a room full of politicians, how do they know who he meant?
