Updating[edit]

This article appears to be in need of updating, as the election has come and gone and this article hasn't been updated to reflect the voters decision. This is why I am marking it with an update tag. Metallic95 00:14, 14 March 2007 (UTC)

Larkspur to ferry[edit]

Is the proposed Larkspur station 1/3 or .6 miles from the ferry dock? The articles currently lists both, so I'm changing both to "less than a mile." 71.132.130.143 (talk) 00:47, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm not sure, but my guess is that the 1/3 miles measure is to the edge of the Larkspur ferry parking lot, and the .6 miles measure is to the actual ferry building. 75.101.11.20 (talk) 01:59, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

References and citations[edit]

This article needs objective references. I'll try to improve my entries, too.

"http://www.sonomamarintrain.org" isn't an objective source of information. It's a taxpayer supported district mandated to promote increased housing density and train use.

Heck - they didn't even tell people about the average 2200 housing units for each station as required by MTC. --76.126.108.203 (talk) 21:37, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

The SMART homepage is primary information and needs to be refuted by other sources. --OctaviusIII (talk) 22:38, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Big Edits for Objectivity[edit]

I went over the page with what I think was a fine-toothed comb to weed out some biased language while keeping the information intact. There were a few things that just didn't fit, such as uncited speculation about how to better use the Measure Q revenue. In addition, I updated the sources to be more completely filled in and switched to mirrored Independent Journal articles where possible, given that the links will expire and the articles will go behind a paywall.

I'd love to get some citations, which I can't find outside of comment threads, on RepealSMART's assertion that it doesn't want to repeal Measure Q but just provide a second referendum on the question. --OctaviusIII (talk) 22:32, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
