Just as Gov. Susana Martinez picked Alvin Dominguez to head the state Department of Transportation, I got the new quarterly ridership numbers for the Rail Runner. See that story here.
In short, Dominguez will have to take a long look at the train and what, if anything, could be done to boost ridership -- and revenues.
Rail transit is of course, just one of the issues facing a department that's got so many topics to tend to, the least of which is financing for infrastructure improvements.
