    Interesting article. South Florida has a rail right-of-way that is being considered as a rail line connecting Miami to Orlando. It is being touted as a major breakthrough as a commuter line. I think it is 20 years late and not using this vital right-of-way to its fullest potential. There is so much more that can be done there

    Shrinking cities should rely on bus service over rail, perhaps BRT depending on the feasibility. Light rail transit presumes high growth and will depend on it eventually. Not to mention, financing light rail transit is more costly than providing frequent bus service. It makes no sense to build costly infrastructure in a shrinking city where providing basic service (buses) might be compromised due to a precipitated mode shift.
