A warning about the SMART train from the California Public Utilities Commission
Full Meeting segment below
Director mistakenly congratulates SMART for "converting to electricity" which is of course, false. He was referring to the proposal by CalTrain on the San Mateo peninsula to electrify. Also, his praise of SMART is wholly unfounded. SMART has been plagued with landslides, faulty engines, crossing controls, engineering challenges and budget over runs.
We pay these folks hundreds of thousands of dollars to mismanage the tax payers funds. Buses are ONE HUNDRED times less expensive.
