Paws and pedals on our new light-rail trains — are we on track for trouble?

The city’s transit commission this week recommended that bicycles and pets in reasonably-sized containers should be permitted on our spiffy new train system, even during rush hours.

I’m skeptical about the plan, for one main reason. We’re spending $2 billion (and counting) on a rail system that is supposed to be smoother, cleaner, more comfortable and reliable, more spacious and accommodating, than what we have today.
