The Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit has been – in the oft-reviled opinion of yours truly – a boondoggle from day one. Designed, on it’s best day, to carry approximately 5000 folks (during that best day) from Larkspur to Cloverdale and return, it has now been scaled back to run from San Rafael to Santa Rosa. The actual number of folks wishing to travel between those destinations whose travel needs lack urgency and are therefore able to wait for the train’s intermittent service, has yet to be determined.
