I've been saying this for quite a while, and I don't get it either. There was a station directly serving North Memorial in the Penn-Broadway alternative. It makes no sense for the chosen alternative to omit a station there entirely.froggie wrote:Keep both and add one at 36th. The lack of a station at 36th is a glaring omission, though I'm not recalling why it was left out...
Honestly, if this line winds up with both stations at Plymouth & GVR, and we get the ball rolling on discussions for a station at 34th-36th, this really isn't all that bad compared to the city route that wasn't chosen. Quite a bit of the same walkshed will still be included by way of Olson/Penn and Plymouth. Obviously it doesn't capture 100% of the NoMi walkshed that the Penn alignment would have, but it's not a total loss either (whereas I'd call SW a total loss in that regard, in that it captures zero Uptown walkshed, not including bus transfers)
EDIT: Since we're on a new page, I'll quote the reminder for the upcoming meeting:
