Im excited about the Vancouver Skytrain like proposal in alternative 4. Automated "heavy rail" high capacity option w possible Linear Induction Motor propelled cars and route with some portions of above grade for sunshine... It shifts the driver from sitting in a forward cab to roaming the train, validating fares, ensuring customer service and security. And, if they chose to go with the linear induction proposal, it has ZERO mechanical moving parts.. ie, 99% on time trains and rare chance of breakdowns... Example, Vancouver Skytrain Expo, Millennium Lines.

I just rode the red line on tuesday and it was full of foolishness... again!!!
