Dallas vs Houston Light Rail comparison (PBS Special)

Interesting comparison and great video shots of the two light rail systems and why one has higher ridership.    Though I will say this, DART was built on population forecasts and forecasted traffic corridor constraints.   Houston was based and built on high density areas that exist now.   So both systems were built differently.
