From the Paper:

"The new means of effective rapid transit in Southern California is the fixed rail system of the Metro Rail or Blue Line, and now that the system is open it is possible to assess the viability of the system, how well it is being accepted by commuters, and whether it can be considered a success or a fiscal disaster. There is evidence that the system could prove to be a fiscal drain on the taxpayer. The Blue Line has only been in operation for a short time and yet has experienced a number of major accidents with vehicles and pedestrians which may involve public liability. In addition, ridership is not proving to be as high as desired, and among the reasons for this in the case of some of the rail lines is the fact that it is more expensive to ride the train than it is to drive a car over the same route."
