Re:What does the data on Portland and Denver say about cost per passenger and cost per passenger mile, then we'll discuss who should be "subsidized"?

Does anyone have the farebox ratio and average cost per passenger mile for the Portland line? Then, we could clearly compare and contrast, the costs and benefits of these two systems, using math.....?

It would be interesting to do the math on the subsidy per passenger and more important per passenger mile, from downtown Portland to the Airport, and compare the total cost with subsidy (and other differentials like travel time) to the passenger volumes generated, by Denver?

But, where did "build in bay area" come up this line of nonsense about building to DIA being so much cheaper across the prairie? Do the farmers who own that "prairie", now located between DIA, and one of the fastest growing urban centers in America, really want to sell them ROW for so much less? Is the cost of track construction per mile really somehow cheaper on the "prairie" of the Denver metro region...?
