Light Rail Riding? Steer Clear of Mesa Stop

Not sure how many more folks are headed out to the train today, but if you are steer clear on the eastern most stop. There are several thousand people there, all waiting in a looong line for their chance to take a ride on the Valley Metro's first day of operation. Unless you're in to the scene drive a couple miles down to the Apache/Smith-Martin or Apache-101 stops, where you'll find no line and plenty of parking. --Martin Cizmar
