Open Letter: Light Rail Could Fix Parking Problem At The University Of Rochester

Light rail is the solution to a parking problem plaguing the University of Rochester, at least according to one writer. Kevin Yost wrote the Democrat and Chronicle to voice his solution to fix the parking issues.

 There is a solution to the parking crunch at University of Rochester and its surrounding neighborhood. Namely, a public light-rail system could run from Charlotte through downtown and the Plymouth-Exchange Neighborhood, and use the former Erie Lackawanna right-of-way and its bridge over the Genesee River, serve the university and also run out to Rochester Institute of Technology, Park Point, and end at the new urbanist Erie Station Village in Henrietta.

A branch line from the university could also serve College Town, Monroe Community College, Pittsford and Fairport, while another branch could serve South Town Plaza, The Marketplace mall and Calkins and Lehigh Station roads. There should also be other light-rail and commuter rail lines serving the city and other suburban areas as well.
