The TTA Regional Rail, are they out of touch?

Can someone tell me what these folks are thinking?

First, we’re gonna deploy a train running on diesel. What about electricity? Next, this train will run rampant through downtown Cary to pick up absolutely nobody, then totally bypass the airport, the most logical stop for any commuter rail system. Any city that has a rail system, and common sense with regards to management and growth, has rail service to the airport. But noooo, not the Triangle Transit Authority, they’re going to put stops in where people won’t ride it (drive around Cary, you’ll understand), and not go to where it would most benefit people.
