    Is there some OTHER public transit option in Colleyville of which I’m unaware? The TexRail Station in Grapevine will be closer to my Colleyville residence than any other public transit. The next closest would be the TexRail Station in Hurst, followed by the stuff at DFW Airport. I don’t know of any Dial-a-Ride in Colleyville. What are older residents that can no longer drive supposed to do? I agree that TexRail is a waste of taxpayer money, but it is FAR better than any other public transit anybody has proposed. I guess it’s like Churchill said: “Democracy is the worst form of government – except for all the others.”

      There is a great little service called Uber. Last I checked it was about $10-$15 each way in the Grapevine, Colleyville, DFW airport area. Doesn’t cost a penny to the taxpayer and is subsidized only by the user.

      If you have ever had to cross 377 in Keller during rush hour, you’ll have an idea of what Tex Rail will do to from Fort Worth up to Grapevine.

      Grapevine is pumped as they think it will bring riders from Fort Worth up to Grapevine (Isn’t that what current Tarantula does). Without that subsidy, this would have never gotten off the ground.

    Dear Editor,
    Just a note of thanks for your many years of service by writing LNO. I’ve shared these articles, “Tex-Rail ” and “…Opportunity to Vote on TERM LIMITS locally …” with over 90 friends and family over the world! I see them as excellent examples of functioning local government. I also suggested that recipients at least once attend their local city council meeting.

    Thank you again for your practice of journalism in Texas.
