Basically, it’s going to be like a mini-BART* but for the North Bay – news to me.

And unlike massively-expensive California High Speed Rail project, we can actually afford the SMART train.

And unlike the useless Central Subway federal pork subway-to-nowhere project in Chinatown, SMART has the potential to benefit its riders.

Hurray!

*Speaking of which, BART to Livermore and/or San Jose, those projects also sound like they could be useful in the future, I don’t know.
