Phil Gordon on Technology

 

 


Light rail is great for economy and environment

It is easy to look at light rail as just another transportation option. It's more than that. And it's easy to think of light rail as a way to keep air a little cleaner and freeways a little less congested. It's more than that. These 20 miles of light rail will move us from the East Valley to the West Valley connecting people, campuses and communities. Those 20 miles are serving as a quiet, non-polluting economic engine igniting investment and development that will be felt from Page to Nogales.
