Re: Labeling the Transit System

if they ever want to build something to actual BRT standards, with LRT-level dedicated guideways, platforms, etc. It would be almost impossible to justify that kind of capital (monetary and political) against public expectations of slightly-less-lousy standard bus service. Well, both the Gold and P...

Re: Labeling the Transit System

The highway BRT study didn't assume dedicated guideway, so by that measure it wouldn't be METRO. Perhaps they'd be regular routes like the 535(?) bus on 35W, using shoulder lanes/transit advantage for the limited distance they're available on any given route.

It's time to rebid this. It's like they're trying to avoid contributing to downtown Minneapolis.

Re: Hiawatha-Minnehaha Avenue Development & Grain Elevators/Freight Corridor

A blue line station at 42nd St would be sooo worth it if it'd stop some of this garbage from being built. This site plan is the perfect visual argument for 1/2 mile station spacing. Really, a dominoes drive-thru? :roll:

Wow the strib editorial board is just garbage. And if someone with mobility issues does need a parking spot in front of their house, then make it a handicap spot and put a set of signs in like I've seen in St Paul (idk if that is done in minneapolis). Permit parking is also an option, or just not mo...

Re: Nicollet Mall Reconstruction Project

I was there a couple of days ago and the sidewalk is super bland. The problem is that sidewalk grey + busway grey is too much. It's like the sidewalk is just more road.

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

You'd have to beef up/grade separate more of the planned trackage near downtown. The Midtown Corridor Alone (which would be 1/5 of a Hopkins-St Paul LRT line, at 4 miles in length) would have 10k riders/day (from the Midtown study), half of Riverview. The other 16 miles should easily have an additio...
