TRAX Stations to get basic names

While I can see both sides of the issue on the station naming, the big news I like in the new policy is that the stations cannot be named for people living or dead. I think the naming of things after people was really run into the ground by Congressman Barr who wanted to name every place in sight after Ronald Reagan even threating agencies with cutting of funding if they attempted a futile attempt at resistance.

Naming stations after people would only confuse new and tourist riders since the names would be nothing. I really have no problem with stations such as Library because it tells you what is at the stop although 200 East 400 South Library Stop basically does the same thing.

Just Keep It Simple.
