Score one for the Free Market

What makes for optimal transit use? Drunkenness.

Apparently, the Tijuana Trolley is one of the few transit systems in the nation that actually earns more money than it costs to operate, according to a Houston Chronicle article. The 16-mile line (from downtown San Diego to the US/Mexico border) was built with no federal money, either.

The train, which goes from San Diego to the US/Mexico border, carries revelers who wish to party in Tijuana but who don't want to worry about driving back. It takes approximately 40 minutes.

Anyone know how the Blue Line ended up being profitable?
