Efforts to bring additional mass transit options to the Valley have hit a snag, as COST (Citizens Organized for Smart Transit), one of the myriad of alphabet-soup, anti-everything, extremely litigious groups that flourish on that side of the hill, has brought construction of the Orange Line busway to a halt with the help of the California Court of Appeals. As seen here, a light rail line may well have been preferable to a dedicated busway. However, with the project 40% complete, it seems like the folks at Citizens Organized for Smart Transit are trying to close the barn door after the cows have vacated the premises. Price tag for their obstructionism? Just a few hundred million dollars of scarce taxpayer money.
