  1. A couple photos from Jacksonville. From Friednship Fountain on the southbank looking across the river. The famous Main Street Bridge sporting its blue glow.
  2. The new downtown residents are benefitting from the skyway. I don't know too much about the busses.
  3. Great shot TJ Will the new Kleman Tower be visible soon from that vantage point?
  4. ^ I agree Lake. The commuter rail line would probably see a higher ridership out of the gate and would be a hell of a lot cheaper. I would hope they would add a line parallel to US17 to tap into the OP area.
  5. I have lived in Jax for 10 years until moving to St. Augustine a year ago. Over the past 10 years I have developed a strong understanding of this cities potential and have grown more passionate about the well being of Jacksonville than the average citizen. I apologize for any harshness in previous posts. I was irritated and said things I shouldn't have. Now, there are many members of this forum that are very knowlegable in all things Jax and offer secure hard evidence supporting their arguments. All it takes is a bit of research and you will find that most of the information posted on
  6. I've seen people biking on JTB a few times. Of course, they probably have a death wish or a serious adrenaline addiction.
  7. Even using the most comprehensive transit systems (i.e. NYC, Toronto, Sydney, Tokyo, etc.) there is no way possible to provide "door-to-door" service. Walking is a requirement af ANY mass transit passenger. A taxi is literally the only way to prevent walking. Those that refuse to walk (or in your case are unable to walk) will then have to continue to suffer the daily gridlock in their car while cursing the congestion. This proposed line (setting aside any correlation to my apparent benefit) is only the first leg of a possible comprehensive, multimodal, system that may service the needs
  8. We do have "door-to-door" service, they're called taxis. Mass transit is designed to move general masses to general areas. There is no way possible to ride a train or bus directly from point "A" to point "B" without some walking using even the most complex transit systems. Its just a fact of life and, frankly, is good for you! If the heat and humidity is too much maybe we can put a glass bubble over the entire city and air condition it. I speak as a firm supporter of this initiative to create a light rail plan and will most definitely park my car in a park'n' ride lot in St. Augusti
  9. I am VERY VERY pleased to hear of the proposed rail line. I'm a current St. Augustine resident and commute every day to the southside (only a 30 min trip mind you), however, the gas prices are killing me right now. I would be a DEFINITE maiden voyage passenger. The sooner they get this train on the tracks, the better!
  10. Great shot of the Tennyson! I looks that the construction industry in Tally will soon be a bit more significant.
  11. Wow, Tally is really exploding downtown. I haven't visited in a couple years so I guess I need to get out there and check everything out. Thanks for keeping everyone posted TaureanJ. Kleman Tower sounds like a great place to live. Its right in the middle of everything. Has the Mayor had anything to do with the hold ups on the Civic Center project?
  12. Click Here for Survey I wonder if this ties into the Mass Transit study?? I haven't seen any updates to the Jax Rapid Transit website lately.
