I was exaggerating a bit on the use. My point was just that our county is the size of Rhode Island and Delaware and has an enormous population. To spend a billion dollars plus eternal maintenance and operation costs for something that serves people that live and work within half a mile of a station seems like a waste of money. The blue line is one of our most utilized and it gets less than 15,000 rides a day out of the millions of commuters here. It's nice that you and some other commuters find it useful, but that money, and all money used for the subways could have gone farther in alleviating traffic congestion on the freeways.
