Re "Trolley car plan: Who will pay?" (Page A1, Dec. 18): The Los Angeles Department of Transportation runs a small but successful downtown bus system called DASH. Since its inception, DASH has expanded from four or five lines to more than 25 lines. The cash fare is 50 cents and an unlimited monthly pass is $18. The five DASH downtown lines run as frequently as every five minutes, depending on the time of day. Wouldn't this be more flexible and cost-effective than the trolley system proposed by the leaders of Sacramento and West Sacramento?
