Why isn't this level of attention given to bus stop design???
Would you be willing to give up 2/3rds or more of the bus stops in order to get it??? Also, given that it uses existing right-of-way, how much of a bus stop design is really a TriMet issue??? I mean, TriMet doesn't own and operate the street.
I think Eriks point is TriMet gives Toy Trains a lot of attention while buses are more of a side project, or side job if you will.How about TriMet gives this much attention to buses period, buying them, running them etc etc
Can we please not call them "toy trains"? The Blue Line definitely pulls it's weight, as they say. And TriMet says the Milwaukie line will be almost as effective, though I'm not sure what projections and assumptions the claim is based on (and how likely it is).The problem is that we don't have a world where people are attracted to transit in the first place and there can be a rational discussion of what transit is best.But it's true that there are a lot fewer MAX stations per route, meaning that money can be concentrated on fewer stops. And that they can get the money from outside sources.
