    40,000 come to Durham to work every day... from Wake County (Raleigh, Cary).

      We basically share an industrial park, and yes people cross-commute.  But something like 70% of the area's population work within the boundaries of their MSA.  (Raleigh-Cary vs. Durham (which includes CH/C).

      This has been one of my big arguments with some high-up folks in TTA.  We don't need a rail link to go between downtowns.  People from Durham want to go to the park and the airport, as do people from Wake.  The fact that they meet in the middle is no reason to engineer a system that wastes huge amounts of money making sure people can get Durham to Raleigh really fast.
