  1. Ya know, I have to say, Ohioans need to stop complaining about this. This is AWESOME that theres funding for the 3C. Its a stepping stone to getting high speed rail. I took the San Joaquin from SF to Bakersfield (and then a bus to LA, boo!) and that train is packed! and its about a 5 hour train trip. People use it and let me just say, aside from San Francisco, Californians love using their cars so all the stations definitely were car oriented "park'n'ride style". Even in SF (Emeryville station). And why is California getting a few billion dollars to put in high speed rail?? Because they already have conventional speed rail in the state. And hell, that timeline is a decade or two out for us to even get it.
  2. I do know several alumni and students have sent letters and signed a petition against the design of the new building. http://www.petitiononline.com/CIA09JMC/ it falls on deaf ears though, the school's president is not very responsive to the students needs or opinions. thank god hes "stepping down" soon... heh

    this is... basically amazing
  4. yeah, celebrities visiting Valley View! awesome...
  5. i tried it out last evening (westbound) on my way to spaces gallery. seemed to take about 20-25 minutes to go from university circle to downtown. it was clean, quiet, and seemed to be comparable to trips taken on the red line. the bus came right away for me. honestly though, it felt like a long bus like the ones i've taken in nyc and europe. definately an upgrade though.
  6. wow those fare machines would be great at every Red line station....
  7. ^yea!! i went to middle school there!! also, i was just at the morgan conservatory this evening, great place, and a really nice turn out for their opening event
  8. ok ok, ill try to whip something up hah
  9. i have an unused 5 trip card. what does activating a card mean? are there machines to swipe it before you board or on the bus??
  10. actually i think it looks great with it all broken, i mean thats kind of the point of the thing anyway isnt it? hah.
  11. wow the Blade puts the PD to shame as far as negativity goes.
  12. having been on amtrak this weekend i was pretty amazed at how packed the train was. not an empty seat in sight from cleveland to nyc. also, the train was late, by 2 hours and i was basically on it for almost 14 hours. it seems crazy that it can take that long to get to new york. but then again would more funding make it faster or just add more destinations?? other than that issue it beats greyhound by a longshot.
  13. ohhh that makes sense now. i thought 6:22am sounded early... well i dunno, i still think RTA should tweak it by 15 minutes. its just the WFL and also its the first train out, i wouldnt think that would be hard to do. and no im not taking amtrak back, im taking greyhound back so ill be back in cleveland at 10pm. this still relates back to my experience in europe where a small german town of 10,000 residents has better rail service than cleveland. it blows my mind. i really hope things chnage.
  14. wow and the picture they used of cleveland is 10 years old, neat-o
