Will the Airport Rapid be up to speed for the RNC?  I rode the Red Line rapid from Tower City to the airport recently (October) and it took forever -- after the West 25th Street station the train poked along at about 5 miles per hour.   The CTS / GCRTA Red line rapid at one time had the fastest scheduled times of any light rail transit in the US with an average of 35 miles per hour overall between Windemere/Stokes and Tower City and also 35 miles per hour or higher between Tower City and the Airport. To achieve that 35 mph average the train speeds between stops often reached 55 miles per hour -- far fasterthan today's 5 mile per hour between station speeds.

If the Republican Convention is to be a success,we don`t want folks using government services.. Any convention is better if those folks hire  limo`s,rent cars,or take cabs.. The purpose should be to generate local revenue...Not give tax revenue away.. A ride on the RTA costs more than the amount put in the fare box..
