Moreover, local businesses should be all over this. Shorter commutes = more productivity.
Secondly, the result is an hour to go 22 freaking miles, between two small cities, and through the type of distant-suburban sprawl that could be easily described as Bailo-land.
You truly are a moron for the ages, Bailo.
It stuns me that in an era where the suburbs continue to grow and flourish, where broadband and social media are entertainment, where safe automobiles will some become automated Google cars and where the whole world is shifting to pollution free hydrogen, that I live in the supposedly leading edge metro of Seattle where the primary technology company makes a GUI for desktops, where every is obsessed with choo choo trains and batteries, and cramming people into 250 ft apodments.
It is like the first became last and it hasn't realized it. Seattle is now the place you go from to get 1G fiber in Lawrence Kansas!
Maybe if they hadn't spent 20 years and billions to create a train that only serves one small part of Seattle people would want to pay for transit.
Every time I read someone referring to a cogent, but oppositional argument as a troll, my cerebral cortex shuts down.
And another thing.
Smug infographic videos on YouTube with indie rock background music.
Or if you build an expensive tunnel that solves fewer problems than the previous viaduct did, with dramatically lower vehicle capacity and no transit capacity. You know, the SR-99 Tunnel approach.
Both lead to disaster.
This is intentional self-parody, right?
Seattle driving joke! Whammy!
I never drove too far back when I drove, but I estimate that I save around $600 a month easily by walking or bussing it. Time, they say, is money. Yes, it does take more time. And that indeed is, money. It is money we all spend on modest taxes that pay for public transit.
I'll never get why "conservatives" do not get this easy to understand tradeoff.
Note, I always put "conservative" in quotes. Reason why is because I know sensible people who think and refer to themselves as conservative. It's the lunatics, the haters and deeply myopic having no reference within history or reality that I just say are stupid. Because, they are. There is precisely no reason for a metro area to underfund its public transit options.
