Silver Line is back on track

Woo: apparently, the DC metro area is going to get the Silver Line to Dulles after all. This is great news--not only do we desperately need more rail capacity, but also, rail to the airport is one of the most obvious slam dunks. No one wants to pay $100 to park their car for a week.

Boo: on the other hand, the line is only going to run to Falls Church. This is the same stupid decision that New York made, running the airport train to Jamaica rather than into Penn Station or Grand Central. No one wants to change trains six times with a week's worth of luggage, either. Plus, the DC metro system desperately needs more central capacity. It's time to bite the damn bullet and build another bridge or tunnel across the Potomac.
