Your Ideas for the '06 Rippers

Due to some Blogger quirks, I inadvertently deleted my post about the upcoming Ripper Awards for the Nation's Best and Worst Transit and Rail Commuter Agencies.

Basically, this is a solicitation for your thoughts. Please consider adding them in the comment section below. Confidentiality will be, of course, maintained if you so desire.

To get an idea of awards were handed out in '05, visit here for the Best, and here for the Worst.

One somewhat late news item from Progressive Railroading Magazine and APTA seems to indicate that Los Angeles Metro should be considered for the "Best" list.
