    Joe, this questioning of the Expo Line’s success is just beginning of a wave of doubt I think. While it’s may be a huge boon to the West Side for the 29k people who ride it every day it was sold a something else when the Measure R campaigns went through. “Promises” were made and when they aren’t delivered it’s only going to make funding that much tougher to get in the future. I’d say it’s time for transit advocates to come up with a pragmatic and persuasive message next time rather than the ‘lets get traffic moving again’ slogan from last time around.
