There’s a real need for it in downtown.

We’re Republican and Democrat, well-off or just regular Joes. A lot more of us use transit than in our parents’ generation. We’re hoping to see good things come out of Florida for passenger rail, transit, and compact community development. Thank you.

Comment on Welcome to Miami-Dade County, home of the dullest motto by Pedro De Los Angels http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/08/11/welcome-to-miami-dade-county-home-of-the-dullest-motto/#comment-10592 Wed, 26 Aug 2015 00:13:31 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28921#comment-10592 The Best one would be “Banana Republic” first if Not then use “The Shady City”. It’s the best two options for what politicians have done to this County and all the cities within. Sweetwater should also change its name, those circus clowns would probably name it now “Sourwater”.

Comment on Maze of solutions congests efforts to enhance our mobility by Adam Old http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/08/18/maze-of-solutions-congests-efforts-to-enhance-our-mobility/#comment-10588 Tue, 25 Aug 2015 01:55:08 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=29060#comment-10588 we need to stop asking for something to save us from traffic. As long as we allow unrestricted sprawl in the suburbs and gas is as cheap as it is, no amount of transit or road widening will get rid of traffic in Miami.

The point should be to stop pouring money into roads, which do not make a neighborhood nicer or create civil engagement, and to give people an option to simply skip the traffic. That is what transit does.

Comment on Hotel workers get their breaks with break in rates by Joan Eisenstodt http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/08/18/hotel-workers-get-their-breaks-with-break-in-rates/#comment-10556 Thu, 20 Aug 2015 12:07:13 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=29083#comment-10556 Great idea! It was difficult to tell if this applies also to hourly workers and if so, if they are paid while taking time off. How are the duties of CSMs in particular being handled while they take time off? It appears from my involvement with ESPA and as a meeting planner that too many CS departments are understaffed. I can only imagine the customer and the CSM after time off .. feeling more overwhelmed when the slack is not taken up.

Love the idea of forced relaxation; curious to know more about the mechanics and how it’s applied across the board.

Thanks.

Comment on UM reverses campus traffic growth by No One http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2015/08/11/um-reverses-campus-traffic-growth/#comment-10553 Wed, 19 Aug 2015 21:19:11 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=28944#comment-10553 In my experience as a bicycle commuter, the most important feature of UBike is the shower privilege at the Wellness Center. The rest of that stuff is fluff although bike racks are helpful too.

Brickell area businesses can take a lesson. One very promising solution for traffic relief along Brickell is an expanded bicycle and pedestrian commuter population. The biggest obstacle for this group is almost certainly, lack of a shower and changing facility.

Ahem, JW Marriott Spa, you listening? Discounted commuter membership?
