Would have been better to have Uber take people over our light rail. Why the first line did not run Burnsville to 694 up 35W I will never get. Then around 494/694. That is how our society has chose to operate around.
I'm frequent user of the blue line between downtown and MSP airport. I come and go at different times and the trains are always crowded. It's not uncommon to not get a seat. Even during slow times there re always a fair amount of people onboard. During rush hour you almost have to push your way to get on. A lot of out of towners use it as well to get from their downtown hotels to the airport.
