Re: Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

My dad takes the parkway coming from Highland Park in St. Paul to my sister's at Lyndale & 54th. These changes will almost certainly push him to 62. One anecdote, for sure, but I don't think it's so unusual.

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

Well that is not true at all for the whole northern half of the line, nor the section south of 62, only for the part cutting through South Minneapolis between downtown and 62 (<40% of the line). And for that section, there is a pair of 3 lane one way roads 1/10th of a mile away for cars to drive on.

Re: Southside - General Topics

I don't want to sound like a monster here, and I certainly don't want to return to a pre-ADA world. And I hope someone will correct me, as I have very limited experience here. But fewer than 6% of Minnesotans have an ambulatory disability. Isn't it in theory reasonable if there is some housing that ...

The white bar's are consistent. They are only for existing transfer points. All the future transfer points don't get bars yet.

Growth rate is in the order listed. From 2017 to 2018: Carver, Washington and Scott grew faster than the 7-county average,...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

It is so wide! Cars treat it like a 4-lane road, because it is effectively a 4-lane road, just without any striping. Drivers pass left-turning vehicles on the right constantly.

The lobby is cool! I swung in there last week trying to find the Spyhouse that was very prominently advertised on the front, which wasn't open yet, and I was impressed by the space.

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Even still, you'd have to tear down at least 6 businesses plus Higher Ground Academy, the National Khmer Legacy Museum, multiple fields at Concordia (and maybe even Sea Foam Stadium) and a few houses for the bridge over the tracks. That's just a real tight geometry in general, going under Hamline, o...

They must use GPS data, or some non-schedule data, because I've certainly seen non-schedule data on the screens, and when texting NexTrip.

But he has even admitted that he could not afford his current lifestyle without the income coming from his website, so he isn't really financially independent in any way that someone else could replicate.

His whole schtick is shaming people who weren't able to follow his improbable career path. The man made something like $300k annually for 10 years, then "retired" and parlayed his moderate frugality into a highly successful blog/personality cult (his own words) that earned him 6 figures.

Re: Bike Share

If we are going to have a speed limit for bikes on city streets, 10 mph is an absurd choice for it. It would have to more reasonably be 20 mph or so.

Re: Bike Share

Nice Ride and Lyft will roll out electric bikes this spring. 500 at first, with 1,300 more to come later. Lyft cited studies that in the 3 other cities they have rolled out e-bikes, the e-bikes get twice as much usage as pedal bikes. http://www.southwestjournal.com/news/transportation/2019/02/nice-r...
