I mean, they already threw logic out the window with Bloomington Central Station being on the eastern fringe of the city. It's not central geographically and it's not a major light rail station, but I guess that's marketing for you.

I'm sorry, full-scale LRT TVMs are now up to $115,000 apiece? How can they possibly cost that much?

TVMs have an insane cost. I believe that Cubic basically has a monopoly on the industry.
