CATS Considers Improving Resident Safety With Subway System

Off the WireCapital Area Transit System Board President Jim Brandt announced this morning a plan to ease congestion between North Baton Rouge and downtown that also would improve riders’ safety.

Brandt explained the “novel approach” to meet both pressing needs would involve drilling a series of tunnels between various safe spots around the city and connecting them with subterranean tracks to transport passenger train cars.

CATS board members were inspired by an innovative transportation system dating back to the 1860s.

“The board is very excited to present this proposal to the public,” Brandt stated. “In looking for solutions to the current state of affairs in Baton Rouge, we dug into the past to find a time in our history in which travel to desired destinations made people as nervous about the authorities as they are now.”

“Thankfully, discovering that piece of American history gave us the perfect solution:
an Underground Railroad,” Brandt said.RedShtick-Top-ColumnStop
