Stop pushing light rail transit. It is very cost intensive and lacks flexibility. Use a mixture of buses and vans instead. We need small scale regional transit to help people that can't afford cars to get from their homes to work, medical appointments or grocery shopping. These people have no way to travel miles to the light rail stops.
Bring light rail or a commuter train to central Arkansas. It would take a lot of cars off the road and could promote development around the stops.
Here are some ideas of where to start a line:
- along 630 corridor
- Conway to Little Rock
- Benton/ Bryant to Little Rock
