Something’s coming to the railyards…


… and it’s not an arena. Construction on the last leg of the light rail extention that connected the outer ‘burbs of Folsom to downtown is in the final stretch of linking to the Amtrak station near 5th & I.

It’s great to be able to theoretically get from any light rail station to other parts of the state by train, but will it do much to get more people using light rail?

While we’re waiting for a transit-accessible arena in the Railyards, you can hop on the train and go to Oakland or San Francisco. I have many issues with the current arena deal, but its location isn’t one of them.
Hopefully the railyards will get some use for people going places, even if it isn’t a destination itself.
