It is great to see support and leadership for the project to restore rail service on the Dumbarton corridor across the Bay!

The horrible congestion is painful for people who commute, and for people who live in the area and have to drive through the commute traffic.

Giving people convenient, competitive options to avoid driving can help alleviate the pain of congestion, for people who are commuting, and for local people impacted by the traffic.

Thanks so much to Mayors Mueller, Gauthier, and Bain, Supervisors Warren Slocum and Don Horsley, as well as SamTrans and Facebook for moving this forward.
