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.

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.
