I've mentioned frequently on FFL when discussing transportation in our 
modern age how Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a joke.  Now even BART 
admits it:

Seemed like a cool idea back in the day (1960s) but it failed to keep up 
with changing times and was difficult and expensive to expand.  The new 
problem (only a few miles from where I live) will wind up putting more 
cars on the road and probably make the Bay Area look like Los Angeles.

Seattle's monorail was supposed to be the "wave of the future" back in 
1962 but all it has ever been was a novelty ride between downtown and 
the Seattle Center.
