Hiawatha Light Rail Line

/ 1 August 2004

I’ve only been on the train twice, but that’s enough for me to see how good the system is. It is fast transit from Fort Snelling to downtown Minneapolis. I know tons of people hate the train, but I love it. Let me point out the likely reasons why some people hate the train, the most likely reason is that it holds up traffic along the line, another is that it is a train and they are used to the buses by now. Those are the reasons that I believe people hate the Hiawatha line. By December the train will be running fully from the Mall Of America to downtown Minneapolis. The main reasons why I love it are that it is a train, and that it is made by the same company as the U6 in Vienna. That is the main reason why I like the Hiawatha line.
