Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I forget if I saw it somewhere or just looked into it on my own, but if/when OL conversion happens, merging Bellevue and Highland stops into an OL station around Belgrade Ave/W Rox Pkwy would make...

Re: Somerville Developments

Just off Union Square (across the street from Bow Market). Exactly where we should be building this scale.

But damn, that's a lot of studios: 77 studios, 20 1-bed, 1 3-bed (yes, I typed that...

Re: Allston Yards (Stop and Shop) | 60 Everett St | Allston

Looks good overall—moving the grocery store south improves its walkshed, as it's that much closer to the residential neighborhood/Union Square.

I can't see why New Balance wouldn't make the...

Re: Alexandra Hotel Renovation | 1769 Washington St | South End

Great project overall, but none of the “traffic” options are acceptable - they all add curbside parking next to the bus stop, and even with a red carpet bus-only lane, Boston drivers are going to...

Re: Amazon HQ2 selected - and not Boston

Much of the opposition was driven by the incentives ("corporate welfare") that New York was giving to Amazon. Sure, there are (strong) concerns about gentrification etc., but without the incentives,...

Re: SBWTC /South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center | Seaport

Gotta push back on this – driving and parking is a reality because we build 1600 parking spots instead of improving transit. This was an active choice that shows the priorities of the state. Every...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

Those are costs of having a car, or of using a car. Those are not costs for using public resources (the roads) or making society deal with your transportation choices (pollution, congestion). Right...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

No, you pay $5 to enter a congested area – where the presence your vehicle has an outsized impact on others. If that causes you to not drive downtown—hey, you're at Alewife, maybe take the T, or...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

Right – the 68 is basically every 40 minutes from 6:30am to 7pm, and not on weekends. Of course no one with other options is going to plan for that – they'll walk, bike, or call an Uber instead (and...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

There are no buses that run on Main Street in Cambridge (west of Vassar Street), and it could certainly use some. Plus, geometrically simplifying the route has a lot of positives.
