I’m stealing an idea from Jarrett Walker (Human Transit) and Yonah Freemark (The Transport Politic). I’m introducing Monday readings for things that caught my eye or my attention ever so briefly, but I didn’t have time/energy/enough interest to make it a full post. Alas, I am but a lowly part-time blogger with no professional creds. Jarrett and Yonah are transport gods.
Last week’s posts:
- Part of the critical mass needed for safer cycling?
- Closing 3 schools in one neighbourhood can’t be a good thing
- Rapid transit for Surrey
- Terminal city at the end of the world
- Friday Foto Feature (2010.09.10)
- Yonah Freeman talks about Vancouver’s Transit Trajectory. Is it to densify the core or extend out. This post is on the heel’s of Metro Vancouver’s recommendation to build rapid transit in Surrey before the UBC line.
- Oh and yes, you should probably take a look at that Metro Vancouver report.
- SkyTrain halted for 5 hours by metal rod on Friday (lucked out on my day off)
- Price Tags delves into the bikes and business issue surrounding the Hornby Street separated bike lane.
- Danny Choo in Japan has been lucky to attend a few festivals in Tokyo. One is the Meguro Sanma Festival and the other is a local Matsuri (or festival) complete with Omikoshi.
