Although I think improving the bus system is the fastest, most cost-effective way to get better transit in Columbus in the short term, there's no denying that rail has its place. Plus, people seem to love rail.
I have created a potential Columbus Rail Map and an Integrated Rail and Bus Plan as a long range vision for what transit could be like several decades from now in Columbus.
