  1. Twin Cities Transit

    No doubt! Not to mention that TOD's would increase all over the place. Wouldn't that be great, little hubs of energy all along train lines throughout the cities. Random thought: Too bad the subway was never built that some were advocating for decades ago. That could've been the start of a beautiful system. Funny how one of the route options being studied for the SW Corridor would put the train underground below Nicollet (Eat Street) on its way from the Midtown Greenway towards DT. While I realize that this street is far narrower than University Ave, nonetheless it is still a very busy neighborhood both vehicle and pedestrian traffic wise. Would be so nice if the light rail vehicles could more unhindered from one stop to the next. Darn it, there are so many stipulations the FTA puts out in order for projects to get approval for 50% match funding.

    Thanks for the link. Was really neat to find out about Narragansett Bay and the challenges the organization Save the Bay has faced over the past two and a half decades.

    Great news about the upgrades! I've been waiting patiently to see when that was going to happen. This will only help to make connections easier and get people to their destination in a timely and comfortable manner. Every little bit helps.
  4. I know this is an older thread... I gotta say I love the lines on the rendering for the future Medical Facility slated for construction in Honolulu, HI. Kudos to that! Hope to visit soon to see how all of this building activity comes to fruition.

    That Bike Station would be real cool. Hope it works out well.

    K6-III This is one aspect related to people getting around in Minneapolis, not the only way. Besides, the skyways are part of "this" urban experience, so that cannot be changed. Yes, it "...remove pedestrians from the street level, making for a rather dead streetlife." but again that is part of current Minneapolis. With the jump in urban core population to 30,000+ people there are definitely going to be changes associated with the amount of street level businesses and the pedestrian traffic that will accompany it in the next decade or so.

    That's true the Skyway system is a gem, usually I can get all my errands done in a short walk through one of the oldest and largest skyway systems. Transit also includes biking. With one of the highest per capita of bicycle commuters in the USA, Mpls can have something to cheer about. Gotta' love zipping down the Midtown Greenway or the Cedar Lake trail without having to worry about much in the way of traffic, more so on the former, but fairly decent on the latter. A few more designated bike lanes DT would help though.
