Well, actually, the Minneapolis LRT has received lots of love from planning types since it opened. Altho dedicated readers may want to keep an eye out for an independent review led by my colleague Ed Goetz sometime in the near future . . .
But, in this particular story (http://www.planetizen.com/node/34842), a Planetizen blogger states his humble opinion that the Hiawatha LRT gets the common folk to the airport better than nearly any other landside connection in the country. As someone who has figured out how to get from the office to the gate in less than an hour via LRT, I heartily concur!
