Light rail or light rail?

    The Bellevue City Council on Monday night became the fourth Eastside government to say it favors light rail over buses for a high-capacity transit line planned from Seattle to Redmond.


    The vote was 5-2, with councilmen Don Davidson and Conrad Lee voting no. Davidson said the question posed by Sound Transit – either light rail or bus rapid transit that would later be converted to light rail – was unfair and slanted.

    "Sound Transit asks, 'Do you want light rail or do you want light rail?' " Davidson said. "We don't have any choice."
