Session-omics and the Rail Runner

The RailRunner couldn’t have come at a better time, for me at least. With the legislative session starting up in six weeks, the RailRunner has already posted schedules for the Albuquerque to Santa Fe roundtrip, with a stop just south of the Roundhouse. The times work great, the pick-up and drop-off locations work great and the price is just $8, roundtrip.

That means less gas and a cheaper trip for me, less wear and tear on my car, more time to work rather than just sit behind the wheel of car and never having to spend 20 minutes finding a parking spot again up in Santa Fe.

I don’t know how many new jobs the Rail Runner construction created, but those jobs couldn’t have come at a better time either. I also bet that the Rail Runner project spurred additional private investment – supply companies, new construction technology and equipment and service enterprises.

That’s a formula that works. When government can initiate a project that unleashes long term private investment, everyone wins.
