When I visited Boston two years ago, I realized that rail transits were everywhere. The trains were old and aged. However, it functioned enough to carry people where they want to go at least. When the train passed by, I was curious that why we do not have any metro transit because everyone knows Minneapolis/St.Paul twin cities are not small cities. At that time, I rented a car, so I did not have a chance to ride a rail transit in Boston, but I thought it would be better for us to have such a convenient rail transit. It did not take long time until my dream came true.
Eventually, we got a rail system called light rail last year. It goes to several famous spots such as Mall of America, metro dome, airport, and downtown Minneapolis even though it still has only one line (Hiawatha). I am happy to exist light rail in Minneapolis because I do not have a car. Whenever I want to go shopping, I have to ask one of my friends. Even though my friends usually comply with my request, I do not feel at ease because I know they are also busy and tedious. Think about the way of shopping. Who knows how much time I will spend? It was very stressful for me to be restricted by time. Of course, I can not go everywhere I want, I am sure that light rail will help me a lot better than before.
I think it can attract tourists as well as me. As I mentioned before, Boston rail transit became one of the attractions. Light rail could be the one. If somebody asks me "What is this locality noted for?” I would say "it is the light rail" without hesitation.
I hope it would be better if more lines will be made.
