The Washington, DC region is great >> and it can be greater.


Another regional rail plan

Inspired by the recent spate of transit plans from here and other blogs, Track Twenty-Nine has a Regional Rail plan that includes a tunnel through downtown so commuters can directly access the job centers around Metro Center and Farragut.
David Alpert is the founder of Greater Greater Washington and its board president. He worked as a Product Manager for Google for six years and has lived in the Boston, San Francisco, and New York metro areas in addition to Washington, DC. He now lives with his wife and two children in Dupont Circle. 


I like it except for that piece. That seems like a deal breaker costwise. I think splitting the blue line from the orange and connecting through Union plus some light rail out the front door of Union servicing those areas would have better bang for the buck for the locals.
