  1. In a better funded RTA...trains stations would have attendants working in the booths, ticket machines would be more like MTA or CTA (along with turnstiles) and they would get more RTA police out of their cars and into the trains and stations more often.
  2. Trade you the Cavs and the Monsters if you ship the Blue Jackets to Cleveland!
  3. I wish Cleveland would go after an NHL team...I wouldn't feel all that heartbroken if the Cavs had to go away to do so.
  4. Westlake10, the screen name says it all. Suburban mentality. More parking. People simply DO want to ride public transit if it is made into a true transit system. Cleveland's system needs a lot of work (image and service) and hopefully in the near future it will get forward thinking leadership. Many people look at Cleveland RTA as a social service rather than a public transit system (in comparison to CTA, MTA and other services) but the potential is there. Expand service, put rail into populated areas that would use it (Lakewood, RR, Old Brooklyn, Parma, Berea, Euclid and Beachwood to name a few places). Add easier to use ticket kiosks (like NYC) ,have people actually working the booths and get RTA police out their cars and onto the trains once in a while...these things would do a lot for image and service. Would you use public transit then? More parking does nothing for an urban area, walkability does. FEB needs density NOT a sea of parking. Sorry for my disjointed rant.
  5. I can appreciate technicalities!
  6. I have to agree with an earlier poster...Hessler St. in Cleveland! How can you NOT like a street made of wood!?!? Does anyone know if there are other streets around the state that are made of wood? https://clevelandhistorical.org/items/show/829#&gid=1&pid=2
  7. I don't think this is true. Firstly, the "email" didn't look all that official. Secondly, I know the guys who is in charge of city building maintenance and they were working on the transformation as of August...unless things have REALLY changed.
  8. I was rereading this thread and it seems that there is a consensus that this project will be scaled down. After looking at the Stark website ( http://www.starkenterprises.com/ ) , it doesn't seem to indicate that. Is this speculation or has Stark definitely announced the project would be scaled down?
  9. Fake news? ::) I guess political buzzwords make me slightly nauseous...This project makes me smile every time I see it, unlike the empty lot called nuCLEus, which seems like a WITCH HUNT by the way. They should just BUILD A WALL around that property! I give Stark credit, he's a real MAVERICK though! Okay, now that THAT'S out of my system...
  10. It may be dated, but at least they put some thought into aesthetics when they built the thing - most garages downtown seem are just big ugly gray boxes. At least the garage above the Tilted Kilt is a big ugly tan box and not gray! :)
  11. A quote from a Charlotte business article..."Ron Tober, who started Charlotte Area Transit System in 1999, applauds current CEO John Lewis for taking an aggressive approach for building three additional rail lines in the near future."
  12. When I was stationed on the East side with the Fire Department, we used to respond to the city owned treatment plant in Chagrin Highlands because it was city owned (which made for a ridiculous response time). We never ever made it in because I believe there was a dual response, but it was a complete waste of time, money and resources.
  13. There have been cases of cocaine being "cut" with fentanyl, which certainly wouldn't give you repeat customers, but it does happen.
  14. Is that building density or population?
