Psst. Hey. Downtown property-owners and major institutions. I’m talking to you. This is between us, OK? That subway idea might be more popular and more feasible than you think.
But you need to not listen, block your ears, totally ignore the arguments you are getting from our regional mass transit agency, City Hall and The Dallas Morning News about why the new downtown rail route can’t be built underground.
It’s at least more possible than anyone has been letting on. It may even come down to a simple matter of choice, which would make it a matter of political will.
Bottom line: In spite of everything you are being told, putting a much-needed second rail line underground or above ground is not — repeat NOT — a decision driven entirely by money.
