Why is a group lobbying the City of Fort Worth calling itself the Tarrant Transit Alliance? Fort Worth is perhaps 35% of the County's population.
How will less than half of the population going to change transit within the county without the backing of the other 65%? I don't think that relying on just the property taxpayers of the City of Fort Worth is wise or will get the City what it needs.
When it wanted a new arena, Fort Worth issued City Bonds; and like Fort Worth did to finance the new arena; Fort Worth should be thinking in that way to finance a light rail/street car line. Rail transit will equal or surpass the returns to the City as will Dickies Arena.
I am retracting my earlier support for TTA until it can propose a tough but serious plan for transit for the City.
