Paradigm shift

State Transpo Major Domo Bernard Cohen wants to make the recent uptick in T ridership permanent by rolling out new Orange and Red Line trains.

"While I don't think fuel prices are going to go down in the near future, we really have an opportunity to take advantage of a change in the marketplace and a shift toward public transportation," Cohen said. "But we are going to need vehicles to carry people."

Might I suggest a little uptick in the gas tax to pay for those new shiny chariots?
