Ruh-rho - they're running out of other peoples' money to spend on shiny trains. What a surprise.
Now, they're being forced to consider a formerly unthinkable, less expensive alternative: bus rapid transit. That really sticks in their craw. They may even have to abandon plans to run light rail lines down SW Barbur Blvd. to Tigard, King City, and points west. It has nothing to do with the fact that voters have balked at the idea, and everything to do with the fact that they can't find enough pots of other peoples' money to ram another unwanted crime train line through.
Oh, the horror, the horror.
