With all the talk about transportation in the Valley, I must say that this metro area has one of the worst to get around in.
The biggest joke of all has to be our new light rail system.
1. The trains don't operate long enough to pick up others after the bars close at 2am
2. In a place where the population is booming we takeout road space to put in a train system that has to obey the rules of the road as well.
3. They didn't build a train system that circles the Valley of the Sun.
The light Rail only works well for those live and play right by it.
What should have been done IMO was to build a high speed monorail( like BART ) that has trains above ground circling passengers from all over the Valley to the big hot spots of while having Park and Ride spots at different spots for people to commute to and from work or play.
My advice to any of our visitors this year unless you play to strictly stay at WestGate, rent a car for yourself and your companisions if you have any and you want to really get around in.
