Extending train to Modesto will add to carbon footprint

July 9, 2013 

Regarding extending the ACE train to Modesto and beyond: Finding more ways for people to travel 100 miles to their jobs still creates a significant carbon footprint. It is much more sustainable and family friendly to require affordable housing be built near job centers or to create the jobs near where people live.
