I am a huge train fan, but this is about an integrated system, not just racially (although that too) but in terms of the types of vehicles we will use to move people around.

With that in mind, here’s a report from Ozark Regional Transit on Smart Bus Rapid Transit which I do support wholeheartedly. From what I’ve read about similar systems around the USA it seems to take about 5 years to build. Northwest Arkansas is becoming a metro area while we watch. And since ORBT is all about looking ahead, let’s do that and start working on this now so we have it when we need it.

Also as though this needs to be said, the buses have to be electric vehicles.
