There goes Savannah, our little sister to the north. Up and running with rail while Jacksonville fiddles - all the while sitting on a pile of cash for Transit from the BJP. "Oh I almost forgot, it's JUST for right-of-way, how many ways can you spell BRT? Running with skunks won't leave you smelling like Tri-Rail or MARTA or Tampa Streetcar, but that's alright, it's all MASS TRANSIT.

The arguments rage to this date, "Should have never been built," "waste of taxpayer money," "Doesn't go anywhere," "Nobody rides it..." etc. Bottom line is we have it, and it is finally showing signs of life. Simple extensions to the Stadium, San Marco, and the area of Blue Cross in North Riverside would turn this little train around. Addition of Park and Ride garages and multimodal transit terminals at the end points would bring on the crowds. The video must have been shot on a Sunday Morning, as downtown is certainly as packed with life as any other major City on weekdays. Jacksonville is a city of Bikes, joggers, walkers, buses and cars, one almost wonders how the photographer managed to find this quiet moment.
