October 20, 2017 – Jay Caruso, Dallas Morning News Editorial Writer –
My move to The Dallas Morning News this year happened quickly. It required me to move to Texas a month ahead of my family to start work and get settled in. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to drive to the office in downtown Dallasand to use the light rail option offered by DART.
I rented an apartment in the Walnut Hill area. At first, I drove every day.
Having spent the last five years in the Atlanta area, I was acquainted with the terrible traffic. Atlanta’s MARTA rail system works well for people in the city of Atlanta, but not for people in the surrounding areas. For many people living there, driving back and forth to work is the only option.
