I'm talking about NWP, not NCRA. I don't at all agree with NCRA and SMART constantly cattle prodding each other. In my mind, NCRA is just as bad and corrupt as SMART. It's such a shame that rail infrastructure like this is sitting unused because everyone wants their piece of pie.
I would say SMART. Now the NWP isn't exactly 100% right either but compared to what SMART has done, NWP looks like the world's most honest "company". SMART is not a railroad or a transit agency, but a bunch of politicians out for themselves. The population of Marin and Sonoma is not enough to warrant a commuter line. I'm not anti-train, I'm a frequent Amtrak traveler myself. I'm against this waste of money called SMART. I believe freight can turn a profit, commuter, not so much. To each his own I guess.
NWP bullying SMART? You got that backwards. SMART is the one playing dirty tricks and trying to screw NWP over. Can this article be any more biased?
