Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

I have to chime with Vagabond. Last time I heard about this, they manage to finally get them to allow its usuage in a very restricted format. I did not hear about any "failure" or end to the...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

While you never said wealthy, Rover pointing out the actual income numbers rather than percentile and/or medians does means the argument "what about the working guy" is still valid. Because the $75k...

Re: Unbuilt roads around metro Boston

Completing the interchange with I-93 and compacting the parkway between 1 and 1A would be pretty nice thing tho. Route 16 can made more highway-ized from i-93 to like Route 99 too. Maybe not...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Again, I'm sure Tangent is thinking of pulling 2K cars that is gridlock in Sullivan Sq everyday to just straight up end their ride in Sullivan. Not pull 2k more cars into Sullivan on top of the...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Jeez Tangent is getting dump on like crazy here. I can see his idea. It's simple, the more cars in garages, the less in the urban core. If cars are parking in Sullivan, it might be only 2 stops from...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Things that are upgrades, major overhauls, replacement for things like signal systems, electrical stations, trains (if it started within the 4 years context), or facilities. No, that's needs more...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

I want to say this because a while back, back during we were in limbo, I once got into an argument where I got hammered down that we haven't got into the "real" construction yet. I got pounded so...

Re: Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

I believe the original version of the bike plan was this nice-and-wide path so wide that it even had separated trails for walking and bike with barriers and everything. It even had on ramps and...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

To be fair, a ton of the traffic snafu keeps the endless closures of of the lanes. While it still backs at that traffic light, it doesn't turn painful unless a lane closes. Which still happens a lot...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

This brings up an ironic thought. The casino is going to be a place for only high-end rich people. At such parking prices, not even well-paid professionals of Boston would really want to come.

Doesn't that mean that guy is spreading disinformation? And he did it while tearing down another guy while also getting ~35 upvotes and thus 35 different people now believing what he said?

Re: General Infrastructure

I'm not examining all the data I should exam before I ask this... But are you comparing travel time for 5:30 PM weekday Boston versus 2:30 PM weekday San Francisco and Seattle?

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

I'm not gonna presume DZH22 is trolling. But he is at least not a good debater. As I watch, I have to wonder if the arguments against congestion charging is better without his "support".

The benefits are easily visible and tangible. That's why when I get into arguments like this I ask about the costs and to ensure costs are minimized to ensure the good outweighs the bad

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

I'm not saying to not push for this dream. In the end, seeing Storrow Drive end is a noble and desirable goal.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston
