Pedaling to work on a bike superhighway (New York Times)
It's not exactly a freeway — it's more a elaborate bike lane that manages to travel through several different jurisdictions to connect Copenhagen to its 'burbs. Good idea — unless you really like sharrows and bike lanes built in the gutter.
Expo Line rolling steadily toward Santa Monica (Santa Monica Lookout)
The story focuses on the stretch of tracks that will run down the middle of Colorado Avenue between 5th and 17th. The middle of the street will be cordoned off for work and traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction with no street parking. It's happening, people. And I'm looking forward to taking the train one day to Fritto Misto for the gnocchi with basil pesto sauce.
Metro's TAP problem — bus driver training (TransitWatch LA)
The post is about a complaint that is not uncommon: bus operators not knowing how to deduct a day pass from stored value on a TAP card. Metro is implementing a new training program for bus operators to help with this.
