Breakfast links: governmental lameness edition
FTA sucks part 937: The Federal Transit Administration continues its attempts to make itself obsolete by ensuring transit can't ever achieve economies of scale.

- Chicago has examples of a cheap way to bring rail transit to more people: infill stations
