I would imagine that is right about where other cities are with light rail, no?
15 minutes is the most infrequent the CTrain runs (with a few oddball exceptions late at night) and thats only on Sundays, every other day is worst 10 minute frequency, plus we also have a shared portion so the downtown has service about every 7 minutes at the worst. During peak we're starting to butt into the maximum frequency with trains every 3 or so minutes in the downtown.

Looking at pictures of low floor stations makes me jealous though, can't wait until our future SE line gets built since its likely to be similar design.
