SLC Impresses Phoenix

Not much light rail news on the KC front as we wait for the mayor and council elections to finish, but other cities press on. A writer for the Arizona Republic muses about Salt Lake City and their successful rapid transit build-out. SLC got a head-start on KC when it hosted the Olympics and has been rail crazy ever since — to the tune of about $2 billion in local funding. Doesn't hurt that the Mormons promoted mass transit rather, well, religiously.
