    It failed because there was not enough emphasis placed in the immediate benefits of the new bus service Greenlight would have provided. Also, they should have chosen the existing CSX line to go all the way between Clearwater and St. Petersburg, which could have been a lot quicker and a lot cheaper, too, than choosing a rather circuitous route to the Gateway area and back.
