Glenwood-to-Aspen light rail is the answer

Regarding Toni Kronberg’s letter supporting an aerial gondola (“Visions of an aerial gondola over Aspen,” Nov. 19, Toni! Your gondola idea might work between Snowmass Village and Aspen Mountain via Buttermilk-Highlands as a skier mover; but a more practical solution for the entire valley from Glenwood and Carbondale to Aspen is light rail.

We acquired the rail right-of-way years ago as a way to solve the Roaring Fork Valley’s long-term transportation needs. Valley-wide light rail, combined with feeder busses, is the only practical solution to our valley-wide congestion.
