Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

they could is try to re route some routes to I-35 & 46th and maybe increase some of the routes that already use the station to try and help, but it probably won't do much (I at least hope they get the main functional parts in the station done first so it can somewhat be used while they finish the mo...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Still don't think Johnson is the worst option when it comes to LRT since we still have Osmek to deal with who might stop just shy of ripping out all of our existing rail lines and replace them with buses

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

I had stuff to do in the morning so I had to skip to full meet up but I did manage to hop on later at the Fridley station by taking the 852 few things I took away from the experience -The Fridley station is cold as hell in the winter, mainly stood in front of a heater in the underground area most of...

Re: Miami

I know this isn't starting in Miami until a few more months but since we don't have any threads for Ft. Laurderdale or West Palm Beach, here should be good enough. Brightline is scheduled to start limited phase 1 service later this month with full service to Miami early next year http://miami.cbsloc...

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

I only suggested better routes connections on the off chance it might encourage people that are less dependent on cars to take it if they live outside of walking distance from the stations.

Re: Northstar Commuter Rail

This thought came to me when looking at the NLX thread, not counting target field station does anyone else kinda feel the Northstar is lacking in terms of connections at the stations, looking at METRO's website (and again not counting target field station) there are a total of 6 different routes tha...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

don't know if it would be possible but if the problem is the wall not fitting in with the historic area, couldn't they make the aesthetics of the wall look like it was built in the same time period as the rest the historic area

Re: Labeling the Transit System

For the 535, I could argue that it has a lower station per mile average, think it has a total of 20 stops (though it doesn't seem like most of them are in use at all times) But I don't now how long the route is so can't say for sure.

Re: Labeling the Transit System

From what I can work out, the general rule of thump for the current system seems to be METRO (plus color): -stations are spaced farther apart on average -has personal ROW on some sections (believe the Red line still kinda counts since unless I'm totally wrong it has a very small ROW only it uses at ...

Re: Orange Line (35W BRT) & Lake St Transit Access Project

I kinda hope Normandale Community College considers adding a shuttle to and from the the South Bloomington Transit Center/Future 98th Street Station via 98th street or upgrading frequency on the 539 (maybe even replace those half sized buses they use on the route) and if its still around the 535.

Re: Suburban City Councils, shenanigans

Given how poorly he did in the last mayor election getting less votes than then the number of write-ins, I have a strong suspicion that most of them where for the old mayor Eugene "Gene" Maxwell as a desperate attempt to get him out of retirement.

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

The only issue I see with the Midtown LRT is that if it uses the trench there's a good chance that they'll have to tear up the greenway which will probably piss of a awful lot of people who would under normal circumstances support it.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Don't know if this is the right place to ask but earlier around 2:30p.m. today I'm walking in downtown Hopkins and see a bunch of old passenger cars and even an old steam train go by headed towards Minneapolis on the TCW tracks. I'm assuming it was some type of private event for a railroad company, ...

Anyone else having a problem with google maps and some of the bus routes?

Re: Metro Transit fares

I know, but the Metropass is only available for people who work for a select number of companies and the 3 school related passes only apply to students if the school is eligible, I was simply trying to think of some pass ideas for those who don't fall in either of those two options. Though I do admi...

Re: Metro Transit fares

been thinking about the GoTo cards a bit and whether or not Metro Transit could benefit for offering different variations of the cards. So I made a small image outlining 2 rough ideas (1st one is the standard GoTo we already have). Don't know if they are any good or would actually be helpful but jus...
