Bus/rail and the funding crisis, part troix

Click the links for parts un and deux of this series.

I've been busy lately, and another full article will be coming soon.  But in the meantime, more material on the bus/rail debate (and in particular, on Peter Rogoff's controversial remarks last week).

  • The Urbanophile's take.
  • Jarrett quotes The Urbanophile
  • Yonah does a followup
  • TriMet announces its latest round of service cuts.  
  • Bojack bashes Milwaukie MAX.  While ordinarily, this wouldn't be particularly noteworthy, as Bogdanski is generally suspicious of big-ticket infrastructure projects, his commenters make a salient point:  The State of Oregon is contributing $250 million to the project, funds which--unlike the Federal match--are completely fungible.  Could TriMet make better use of the money?
And a few other items:
  • The Cascadia Corridor is getting nearly $600 million from the feds.
