The Light Rail Lobby groups have lot of power, making it seem monumental to challenge these vested interests in a city with a black ruling elite. Already, it seems the light rail expansion serves the interests of wealthy capitalists as noted earlier. Providing alternatives to this plan does not mean one is against mass transit, but that the system that is implemented should be put in place dictated by the ideas of the populace, not the business community. Opponents of this lobby must co-opt their foes, by offering altered versions of the light rail expansion plan with ideas like a streetcar network, or tunnels underground, so those supporting it will come to the negotiating table.
