Traffic then, traffic now

Who thinks info-graphics are new?  Traffic into Downtown Pittsburgh circa 1941 via the November 1941 issue of Progress, the magazine of the Pittsburgh Regional Planning Association.

Just for those wondering why there is a post here at all. No "real-time" posts this week barring most any conceivable news. I have left a few things to post that a few may find interesting.

543,000 work in downtown how does that compare to today?

11% (58,000) walk
44% (241,000) transit
45% (244,000) in cars/taxis/trucks

and for PAT:
8,758 busses/lightrail per day not counting transit rail

143,500 cars/taxis/trucks.

God Bless the walkers, think of the global implications of this, more walking/transit is less healthcare costs, more fit, more toned, more athletic, less cancerous exhaust, less stress and roadrage, less highway and bridge wear and tear as well as less $ to constantly repair them, and most importantly less dependence on foreign oil and less reason to frack the environment. Get up and WALK people!

Appalling how many cars are downtown these days. First four stories of Mellon Garage are parked in the aisles; lot on North Shore is full.

If PAT is to be gutted, there simply aren't enough parking spots, let alone road capacity to bring people in.
