We at Seattle Transit Blog know that our readers like to play the role of transit planner and many others like to think of themselves as a model urban planner. This week we’ve presented many opinion pieces covering a range of transit and urban issues:
- On Monday, Eric blogged a Snow Post-Mortem about the transit system’s failure during last month’s Snowpocolypse.
- Later on Monday, Andrew compared the Viaduct to SF’s Embarcadero Freeway.
- On Tuesday, I blogged about our bus system’s unplanned reduced service last week, and why poor communication embarrassed our region’s biggest bus agency.
- On Wednesday, I argued that the new ORCA fare card/pass is the right thing for our region.
- And later that day, I made the case that the (sometimes confusing) Ride Free Area is necessary, but that ORCA might one day make it obsolete.
- And yesterday, Ben Woosley blogged that Seattle doesn’t need parking maximums and that transit would be hurt by them.
And we have pretty big news from Sound Transit coming up around 5 this evening. Stay tuned…
