Yinz and yang

In Japan they are debuting the train which will have regular 200mph service.  We will be lucky if we get to 20mph with what is opening up here soon. 

Alluding to the North Shore Connector seems to have sparked a rare comment from the usually quiescent art and architecture desk here at Null Space.  Is there some metaphor in the über-differences between the old Gateway Center Station, and the one that is replacing it?  The former seemed to have used the Fort Pitt Block House as a model, yet what is almost open sure seems to be channeling I. M. Pei.  Quite a contrast. What it means???

I often wonder what the NSC will mean for downtown parking patterns and costs. One of the many reasons I'd love to see market pricing for parking implemented on a wide scale, a pipe dream I know. The NSC would look a lot more attractive if stakeholders were competing for commuter business in an environment with fewer fixes in place. Im not beating a Galtian drum here, but parking pricing seems to me to be the exact sort of thing that markets sort out well and getting the trolley across the river should, in an ideal world, benefit just about everybody with a stake.

The 'market pricing' comment sounds a bit odd to me economically. I suspect the Downtown parking prices are mostly market based and reflect the premia of scarcity imposed by geography and density.

But I agree that the NSC ought to expand parking options which would erode that premia some. Certainly cant hurt. Piece it together and you may see why there is a push to get some sponsorship that could be used to make a 'greater' Downtown free trip zone for the T. Greater to include the new North Shore stop.

In the end, pushing down parking prices can only work to maintain/increase the competitiveness of Downtown as a location for establishments/jobs.

what are the opportunity costs of suburban and urban parking from the perspective of the suburbanite, the host municipality and the city dweller?

I see waterloo station in that new dahntahn station awning

We can't build high-speed trains because Republicans don't want to spend money on it and Democrats don't want it built in their backyards.

More than 99 percent complete?! Why, that means they're almost done. Almost ... All that's need for 100 percent success is ridership.

Why do we need a high speed train to cover ground that is maybe 15 minutes walking?
