I think double-tracking the sounder and having better local transport is the answer. I quite agree with the caller. LA is a prime example. More lanes will just cause more congestion. Express lanes likeon the Garden State Parkway in NJ help some, but asphalt is really not the way to go. One other thought. In some parts of Switzerland, they have trains where the people load their cars on flatcars. That way they do have a transportation solution when they arrive, though not a perfect one. I would love to have a train from El Centro, where I live, to San Diego.
Also, if public transit does not make money, but frees up congestion on the freeways, it still has paid for itself.
