How long will we wait for the train?

MetroRail Watch

Cap Metro said Monday that it's still working on those computer and signalization issues, and that now we'll be boarding the train in the first quarter of 2010 – at best. Frankly, a new target date doesn't give us much reason to raise the arm – we've been down that track before.

Current Cap Metro CEO and President Fred Gilliam won't be around to see it – word came on Wednesday that he's resigning, effective mid-October.
