Still a long way to go - NO SUNDAY OR HOLIDAY SERVICE. This will never be a world-class operation until it operates 7 days a week.
It's not a ridership issue anymore. The demand has been proven now and the citizens are ready to move up to the next level.
If they want taxpayer support for the Rail North Texas initiative, give us train (and bus) service on Sundays and holidays that we can use 100% of the time.

Yeah, I wonder why they don't give it a try for six months -- maybe just run four or five trains each way on Sundays -- and see what the demand is like.
