Panel OKs new cars for Metrorail
I like our Metrorail, and use it whenever I can. So it's good news to me that the County Commiss- ion's Transit Committee approved buying new cars for the train. But as a taxpayer, I gulp at what Lou Ortiz wrote in Miami Today about the county's missed opportunities to rehabilitate the existing coaches and defer spending the really big bucks for a decade or more. OK, the bright side: More than a year ago I saw what the new cars were supposed to look like. They had more room for bikes in each car. That, I truly like.
