Re: Public Transportation
Mary some of the areas are actually prosperous others are indeed depressed. A light rail system is being developed for the Woodward line.

Re: Public Transportation
Thanks for this info, Resurgent. It looks to me as  though these areas, many horribly depressed like Detroit, could certainly benefit from some light rail infrastructure. I hope it's being considered. Do you know whether it's seriously in the works or not?

Re: Merry Christmas Future Cities
The saying has now changed to: "Between you, me, the lamppost, and the intelligence services. Your conversation will only be shared if it fails to comply with our "safe talk" criteria." It's a bit of a mouthful.

Re: Public Transportation
I like the idea of rentable electric cars. Is there a similar scheme you've seen that you'd like your city to emulate?

Re: Public Transportation
Mary, Depending on what form of Light Rail or ???? of transportation they decide to use we can buy or build a machine like the boring device in Rich Heaps article on the Cross Rail Station. After 14-20 years and 6-8 transportation system we should have a good return on investment.

Re: Public Transportation
If Public Light Rail Rapid transportation is implemented on 6-8 major street the following communities would be connected with public transportation: Ann Arbor, DTW Airport,via (Michigan Ave) Lansing, Novi, (Grand River), Canton, Westland, Livonia(Ford Road), Bloomfield area, Royal Oak(Woodward), Sterling Heights, Warren, (Gratiot), St Clair Shores, Grosse Points, Dearborn, (Jefferson), Detroit and many other communities would benefit. They can implement one every two years...with lesson learned for improvement and 14- 20 years this would be accomplished. In this wish I wouldlike to see a partnership between the Automoblie Companies and the Government to develop new methods and implementation programs. The existing buses could be used as feeders to the major trunklines with rapid light rail or ???? transportation systems.

Re: Public Transportation
Great thinking, @Resurgent. Would you mind telling us which municipality you're hoping this for?

More Protected Bike Lanes
I do hope we see more of these in 2014. I think it's a logical next step to be both progresive in this effort and protective of the riding public. I realize there are various restrictions depending on the environment, but there have been numerous injuries, in particular in Boston, that highight the need for this infrastructure.

Public Transportation
The wish I have for the City I live in is. A regionally coordinated Transportation system. I wish the designers would visit Cities around the world and use successful methods to design a regional Transportation system. I hope they will not trash what we have but integrate using different mode, subways, trains, buses, bikes, rentable electric cars, etc....
