@LawrenceHall105 @RideFreeArea @clmwalkscle @AllAboardOhio @NOACA_MPO To clarify this is an ill conceived tourism concept that will not improve mobility for Cleveland residents. There are other Priorities that will improve the mobility of Cleveland residents such as expanded RTA service RTA SOGR, and expanded Amtrak service.
@LawrenceHall105 @RideFreeArea @clmwalkscle @AllAboardOhio @NOACA_MPO Where does the chamber of commerce stand on this?
@RideFreeArea @LawrenceHall105 @clmwalkscle @AllAboardOhio @NOACA_MPO Interesting!

Why is this region so obsessed with novelty transit rather than getting everyday, all-purpose riders where the need to be in a reasonable amount of time? twitter.com/CLEstreetcar/s…
@MarkWSchumann The follow up question should be At what cost? For how many trips? Where will it stop? How frequently can it run? What were the alternatives considered? Who pays?
@LawrenceHall105 @clmwalkscle Lets check in again in 12 months.
@LawrenceHall105 @clmwalkscle This is the problem. We make excuses for the lack of investment in transit, but laud public dollars being spent on tourist attractions (stadiums, hyperloops, convention centers, hotels) now a scenic railroad. This isn't about mobility this about tourism.
Why isn't the Cleveland media asking basic questions about this like: How many trains per day? Who will it serve? Where will it go? How @GCRTA is supposed to pay for this study with their financial constraints? Will this be another Hyperloop? @stevelitt @SceneSallard
Why is Cleveland so bad? I don't understand why people think this is a good use of time and money. Instead of looking at opportunities for Amtrak expansion in Ohio, and generational investments in transit. We are naval gazing at spending public dollars on unusable Railroad. twitter.com/jopanese/statu…

This map of the Midwest electric interurban systems is from 1923. I found it tucked in my DSR 1922-1956 book. Could you imagine if this network still existed today??
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman Economic development doesn't work that way. This is the 21st century, Invest in your people and the businesses will come.
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman Is this you?
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman This is my favorite part from the article.
That money could have repaired every road in the city and have RTA money to replace its aging rail fleet.
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman Of course it looks better as you drive through. The point was to hide the poverty and decades of neglect. It does nothing to help the 40% of kinsman residents without cars. usa.streetsblog.org/2014/09/23/cle…
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman You have it backwards, the jobs they want are in Cleveland because Cleveland is the best place for those jobs. Those workers would still work in Cleveland with or without the Kasich freeway. The question is how many will move further from Cleveland because of that road?
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman Was it worth demolishing homes and uprooting hundreds of people to save suburbanites 60secs a day during their commute?
@FixRStreets216 @jeffsleasman The OC is trap. It it only helps people in Avon get to the Cleveland clinic faster.

BART turns 50 and instead of interviewing a qualified professor/historian or urban planning expert they give space for an anti-government, anti-tax, climate denying think tank that wants to privatize transit. At least watch to see Oscar, our station agent turned manager, shine. twitter.com/KPIXtv/status/…

night falls. nature calls. you hesitate to leave your comfy state of rest. but lo the sewers flow beneath the moon’s autumnal glow: “we are here” sewers call, “we will serve until dawn.” ‘and on and on,’ you reply. you flush. a hush. rest well. the sewers say goodnight.
@FixRStreets216 There is a ton of good information on transportation funding.
Especially how much non user revenue is used to fix our streets.
@FixRStreets216 I literally searched
"How are local roads paid for"
And got this.
Have you heard of NOACA? National Highway System? If not google it.
@FixRStreets216 There's less money needed for maintenance if you remove cars and trucks from the roads.
Bikes don't damage roads cars and trucks do. More bike lanes means lower maintenance costs for roads
@FixRStreets216 Google is free taxpolicycenter.org/briefing-book/…
@FixRStreets216 And this "Gasoline Taxes and User Fees Pay for Only Half of State & Local Road Spending" taxfoundation.org/gasoline-taxes…
@FixRStreets216 There this too stacker.com/stories/2840/h…
@FixRStreets216 Let me help you with that.
The highway trust fund is paid for by everyone.
