Norfolk is finally starting to catch up to her somewhat more established buddies - Seattle, Miami, etc. that have had Light Rail for quite some time. The Tide has been running for less than a year, and has already blown away any and all expectations. Plans for future expansion are being discussed.

I spent a quiet Saturday afternoon walking around Norfolk to get these images which shows how new technology meets the city - in a positive way. I parked at one end of the line (Newtown Road) which saves (a) fuel in my pick-up truck and (b) parking fees downtown. Hmmm... for $3.50 round-trip good for all day, it's quite the deal, I think.
