I appreciate Allen Klinefelter's frustration with his long commute from Eagle Mountain ("Train too expensive," Forum, Jan. 16). I do not dispute his right to fair representation as a taxpayer, but I urge him and others to reconsider their decisions to live in far-flung exurbs.
City life isn't for everyone. But when the cost of your commute becomes prohibitive, it is time to consider relocating.
Salt Lake's inner suburbs offer exceptional quality of life at a reasonable cost. Yes, buyers sacrifice some square footage to live closer to downtown, but they gain tree-lined streets, walkable neighborhoods and better transit.
