The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

I actually am more optimistic tonight than I was this morning.

Trigger warning I'm going to use the phrase "those people"

 

I went on a quest this evening to find a frozen duck to make for dinner this week.  (more on that later)

I ended up driving from the Green Hills Kroger to the Belle Meade Kroger.  there were way more pro transit signs that I passed than anti.

if those people will support it, we can get anyone to vote for it. 

 

side note,  anyone know where I can get a whole duck? frozen preferable since that should be cheaper.  I went to 7 stores with no luck.

That is definitely an encouraging sign.  You and Neigeville are right that myself and others are jumping the gun with our pessimism.  We will just have to wait and see, I guess!

Btw, the only time in my life I purchased a whole duck, I got it in Chinatown, and they were ample there.  I know Nashville doesnt have a Chinatown, but surely there is an 'Asian' market somewhere that would have a butcher shop.  Have you checked K&M world market?

Nice! Looking forward to hearing about the end result! Sounds like an amazing meal is in the works!

I'm ok with the proposed tax increases, but my concern is that they only account for a relatively small portion of the funding. What happens if the federal dollars don't come through?

We start squeezing the suburbanites.  Lunch money, parking, etc.

That was my primary concern for a long time. If I remember correctly, the mayor’s representative who came to the meet up a few months back said that they highballed all their estimates and had backup plans. Can someone who was there verify this?

Yes, the estimates as we have seen include a percentage to account for unexpected spending or lapse in funding.

I think the set aside is 30%. Can anyone confirm?

Good thing education institutions are pro transit.  At least I'm assuming they are. I'm  not having any high expectations, but I have a feeling it may pass. Barely.

Don't take the individual's right to spending 12 hours a week in traffic!

Soon they'll be saying that Russia is behind the transit plan, and they're taking our freedom. Oh no we can't let them take our freedom to sit in traffic for 2 hours and then come home to complain about traffic for another 2 hours. :lol:

I still think this will lose big, but I very much hope that I am dead wrong and that you are all right!
