So the port wants to build a $413 million rental-car center at Sea-Tac. The center will house 5,400-cars at most.
Sea-Tac light rail station? More than 3,000 daily riders at just $73 million.
Sure, apples-and-oranges, whatever. The fact is, cars are hugely expensive, their infrastructure is even more expensive, but few bat an eye when $413 million is spent on them.
