    That’s too bad about slow progress re: Sac’s Green Line extension to SAC.

    Though, as the article points out if it could even get to Natomas in a sooner phase that’d be really helpful.

    As I’ve mentioned before in many ways Sac often reminds of Portland (but with more sun), and it’d be great if they could go through with the plans for the Portland-esque transit/bike/ped bridge as opposed to yet another one with car lanes.
