Re: Riverview Corridor Streetcar

Advantage of Rush going on current routing rather than E7th or Kellogg is allowing a transfer to the Green Line without going into DT StP. I like the idea of Rush heading into DT MPLS, but people have complained about the length of routes and I'm just skeptical it would happen.

This includes Green and Gold. You can imagine the Rush just coming down Robert and meeting the Gold Line routing. I can't remember the Riverview routing, tho.

Re: Pedro Park

I like that idea, but is it realistic? How much would they need to spend on renovation?

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I hope public works will take a look at this. I was thinking of just swapping out with a traffic lane because there seem to be extra. Also seems less politically difficult than swapping out parking. Some of the parking is bookended with bumpouts which wouldn't allow bike lanes (can't remember how ma...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I wrote a post proposing buffered bike lanes in DT St. Paul of 5th and 6th. I wasn't sure beforehand whether to propose them on the right side (the bus side) or the left side (sometimes parking lanes). Any thoughts?

Re: We have 30 Days of Biking; why not 30 Days of Transit?

A couple of big differences I see: - Bicycling can be joyriding, not as likely with the bus - In my city (St. Paul) it is simply time-prohibitive to use transit for many of these errands. Bicycle rides are almost always quicker and better match your own schedule - A poor network and low frequency ma...

Re: Amtrak Empire Builder and Intercity Rail to Chicago

Why does it cost so much money to study a second train that will run on existing tracks?

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Schafer Richardson, 99 units, 90-some parking spaces. Most of the first floor of the building is actually parking, just the front that is enclosed. Three front doors in the commercial space, but left flexible depending on tenant desires. Will include infrastructure in case someone wants to add a kit...
