Whats the point of adding another vehicle at grade if it is stuck in traffic? Might as well keep the bus/trolleys and save the money then.

Comment on State OKs cutting Biscayne Boulevard lanes by Alex Murray http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/03/18/state-oks-cutting-biscayne-boulevard-lanes/#comment-8827 Thu, 26 Mar 2015 11:11:32 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=27139#comment-8827 I love the idea of the Biscayne Green, although I don’t think it goes far enough. For the Bayside to “one day be an even more prominent commercial center” Miami needs schemes like this implemented soon.

New York has pedestrianize half of Times square along with 25 other “plazas” making the area much more friendly for the average human. Miami is being left behind. Incidentally it improved traffic flow in the Times square area.

I would scrap the surface parking and the underground parking. It would save a lot of money. There are enough surface lots in between 5th and 8th that if the market demands more parking spaces someone will build a multi-story car park on these lots.

Comment on Tourist taxes add-on a creative way to finance vital transit by Victor http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/03/25/tourist-taxes-add-on-a-creative-way-to-finance-vital-transit/#comment-8824 Thu, 26 Mar 2015 09:06:29 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=27170#comment-8824 Only they don’t want to spend a dime on mass transit. Tolls are going up all over the place, which means, more people are going to take the streets, which will make more congestion, and in a city where you can barely able to get around, now you’ll be spending more time stuck in traffic. Miami have the worst planners I’ve seen in the many cities I lived in.

The parking will go underground under the medians.

Be mad to let this man get his way.

I take public transportation, and ride my bike when I can, but I am self employed, and when I have to go to a customer site, all this parking removal makes it difficult to get to worksites. I was looking for parking the other day in brick ell, and it took me 45 minutes to find a parking spot for a 30 minute job. It is frustrating. We should be adding more parking, not less.

My husband has an LVAD. Would this disqualify him?
