SMART Questions Must Be Asked (Marin IJ 03/23/06)
I support rail as an additional mode of public transit where it makes sense - environmentally, economically, and socially. However, the current SMART proposal does not make sense for Marin County since the Final EIR shows that it will not relieve traffic congestion and has low ridership from Sonoma to Marin County.
