Light Rail for VA Beach?

18 12 2007

Recently in the Hampton Roads Business Journal (Inside Business), there was an article about how the Virginia Beach City Council is trying to buy the rail line that runs from Newtown Rd. to Cypress Ave. (It used to run to the Oceanfront but they decided a bike trail would be better) This attempt at purchase may lead one to believe that they are considering Light Rail. Virginia Beach has changed alot since the initial vote on Light Rail. What would the early 90s Beach do with Light Rail? Well hopefully this is one step closer to making a more united region and a much more complete mass transit system. I hope now they realize that a bike path along this track would NOT be money well spent.
