    Free advertising. It is good of the PR to run this, and as a press release, it WORKS, stressing what benefits will come to the people reading it, not to the people who paid someone to write it.

    Achilles’ Heel: Assuming that a government agency, Metrolink, knows what they’re doing.

    Between Oct 21st on out, this looks to be a big-time “mistaken assumption.”
    Who is the head of Metrolink? Name, please.

    Also: People who have in the last 10 days attempted to sign up for Obamacare might be ever so skeptical.

    Reminder: Anyone who relied on NJ Transit to get to and from the Monmouth Park BC still have nightmares.

    And just how are people supposed to get from the Sierra Madre Villa Metrolink station, the terminus of the Gold Line, and the track, which is 3 miles away? That information is not easy to obtain, and it would be helpful if the BC and/or Metrolink would provide instructions for transfers to buses or a even better, a shuttle from the station to the track. Heck, even Del Mar has a shuttle from the train station to the track and back!
