Triangle Business Journal reports:
After writing off $140 million and going into virtual hiatus for three years, Triangle Transit is launching a new bid to build a regional rapid rail system.
The government authority will pay $2 million to consultants in the coming year to get the planning train rolling again. It will be the first major expenditure on a rapid rail project since a previous effort veered badly off track in 2006 after failing to win a long-term federal funding commitment.
That failed effort cost $140 million.
So, how much more do pols want to spend to study and plan for this?
