But then the LRT would still have to run along Main St... sooo what's the point!? I was originally against taking the B-Line off campus, still a huge supported of non-rapid lines (1A, 5, etc) to stay on/in/whatever.

To route a Rapid Light Rail vehicle through a campus such as Mac's would not only cause delay, but discomfort as there would be so many twists and turns. The point of Rapid Transit is the 'RAPID' aspect. Plus, the B-Line LRT will stop right infront of University Ave, which is convenient enough.

I think that removing the B-Line was just a precautionary measure so that there isn't a huge backlash for not including LRT on campus when the B-Line "already is".
