Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

This thread moves fast, so this might have been brought up already, but the University-Huron intersection is a total mess with the signaling. I ate an entire slice of Mesa pizza waiting for the eastbound light to turn green. I would presume the light did turn green, but there is a car that illegall...

Speaking of SWLRT, KA has been causing some difficulties there as well. \

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

If this goes forward will it pretty much seal the deal on there never being a route through uptown? That's why I think they should drop the 21st Street station, and single track (at grade) through the Kenilworth corridor. That way it would be an extremely low cost switch to route SWLRT down the Gre...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Road the Green Line today. Saw cars constantly blocking the intersection at Washington and Huron causing significant delays to trains. Has anybody witnessed this?

Re: Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT)

I took the Blue Line from 46th St. to TFS on Sunday. I was coming from Highland so I parked on S. 36th Ave. (I didn't realize how close the creek is!). Anyway, I'd never approached this station from anywhere on foot and I was dismayed by the pedestrian experience. Not knowing better, I walked along...

My guess is for the cruises that operate from Bohemian Flats.

Is it broken if it never worked in the first place?

Re: LRT Disappointments

And no Nextrip on LRT's is a weird oversight. OMGTransit can't get the data, because the data doesn't exist yet. But they're working on it. My understanding there was some issue with a vendor when the original line was built. Last I heard NexTrip for trains is planned to go live in July. Edit: 2014...

I think it's actually this product as it has been used quite often in this area.

Is that a bike stairway leading up the stairs or will there be a railing along there?

Re: Target Field Station

Signs are on the platform. The old platform is Target Field Platform 1 and the new platform is Target Field Platform 2. It is nice operating into the tail tracks. Still training passengers to exit at Target Field. It was nice being able to catch a northbound train before heading south at Warehouse ...

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

Seems the discussion of station area "betterments" is getting put off and off, with the costs rising with delays fewer and fewer betterments are seen as being implemented. The shocker was that around the Shady Oak Station the SPO isn't budgeting connecting 17th to the OMF, connecting 17th from Exce...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Yes, but looking West on Vadalia, there is what I would call a standard train signal with three lights, one being red. Why the change here instead of the bars?
