Letter: Alternative points of view appreciated
Hooray for a voice of common sense and practicality for the taxpayers of Hamilton County.
It is my understanding that there is no rail transit system that is profitable and, if that is correct, why would we want to be laden with a permanent drain on out tax system?
If the Metro in Washington D.C. – with practically no parking lots – isn’t self-supporting, how in the world would an Indianapolis system come anywhere close?
I believe the proposed system would only go to 10th Street, and how helpful is that to anyone with the center of Indianapolis as their target destination?
Thank you for allowing a voice of reason that opposes the opinions of the mayors to appear in your paper. Let’s hope the mayors read the piece and take it to heart.
