Ok, well it is not in Utah, but this is breaking major ground. A committee has backed building light rail from Henderson to North Las Vegas via downtown despite the opposition by homeowners in Henderson who actually think that buses will be quieter than light rail trains and the Las Vegas Review-Journal itself that tends to be extremely anti-transit.
If any city needs to improve its transportation system and has a need for light rail it is Las Vegas. Anyone who has dared to drive the streets in that town know how bad traffic and the drivers are.
Lets hope that the project continues and they build a light rail line. Maybe they should look to Salt Lake City and see what a great light rail line TRAX has turned out to be despite misguided opposition in the early years.
