Light rail: An inexpensive way to go
Article published on

Editor:
Although I am sorry to see that planned transportation improvements, if approved by voters in November, will increase the sales tax, hurting some folks, they also will help them by providing inexpensive rides to distant jobs. When I was entering high school in 1944, I lived on the west side of Cleveland, Ohio.

I chose to attend an all boys Catholic High School on the far east side of Cleveland.

No problem: I took a bus to downtown and then light rail to the school area. Many years later, I returned to Cleveland, having retired from the U.S. Marine Corps (1968). My job required much air travel. Fortunately, I could drive to the light rail station a few blocks from my home, leave the car there without charge and speed to the airport. I travel for pleasure now, but have a friend to ride with me to Tampa Airport and take my car home to avoid large parking fees. I take the shuttle home, but light rail would be preferred.
