Common sense dictates that bikers & runners can be re-routed. The tunnel is the only viable route for the Purple Line. Even the young lady runner agreed that she would sacrifice the tunnel to the Metro because we need better public transit.

To Mr. Sears in the video, I think the folks in Baltimore and the I-270 corridor (both advocating for their own rail projects) might disagree with your assertion that the PL is the most important transportation project for Maryland.

Common sense dictates to me that the Purple Line is light rail and not part of the Metro system; that commuters can take commuter buses that are provided; that this light rail is a complete waste of money and will be a money-losing endeavor; and finally, that the money simply is not in the coffers for such a system.....except maybe in the mind and planning of developers who stand to make big bucks from it. Better public transit for whom?
