Jeff, I couldn't agree more. With SWA running $59 fares to So. Cal...what is the payback on our $10B investment? Ridiculous!

Add the SF Bay ferry initiative to the pile...you can have all the ferrys you want, if you can't get to ferry, how do ferrys aleviate the bottlenecks on the bridges?

Just fix the bridges, just like the San Mateo bridge - wonderful!

$10 billion, the estimates are currently $33 billion to build the system. When you take into account the history of spectacular underestimating the cost of infrastructure projects like this, well then it looks more like $50-60 billion project plus funding the operating losses they are most certainly to incur.
