I think your point about providing a speedy transit option for students, and employees, commuting to UBC is a valid point. The University of Utah is also geographicly constrained with the campus lodged up against the mountains. Students and employees commute up to an hour on the Red Line to get to school and work and this line has substantial ridership and does provide a viable commute option for both students and employees. I am not sure what riders were doing before the direct rail line opened but I am sure that it was not a desirable option. I am sure as ridership has grown in the Broadway corridor, it will outgrow what a bus system or even a streetcar/light rail system could reasonably expect to provide and a rapid rail extension would be the next logical evolution for transit options.
