Let’s put a stop to the Purple Line

Regarding the May 23 Metro article “Transitway could be built for less, study says”:

Did anyone else notice that 160 miles of bus rapid transit could be built for about $2 billion, while the same amount of money buys only 16 miles of light rail?

Light rail is many times more costly than bus rapid transit. Let’s rethink the Purple Line. Light rail makes less sense every day.
