I was catching up on my blog reading early this morning, and there are just too many interesting things to pass by without linking.
- The High Speed Rail Association’s new network plan – the two routes we St. Louisans would be most interested in (Chicago-St. Louis and St. Louis-Kansas City) are proposed for 2015 and 2020, respectively;
- A rebuttal to a New York Times piece critical of high-speed rail in the U.S.;
- Will light rail vibrations interfere with academic research or radio station broadcasts in Minneapolis?
- A discussion of bus route numbering and signage, with some examples of good and bad;
- And the struggle for transit funding in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Meanwhile, over at Human Transit, Jarrett ponders the impact on transit if the U.S. changed from paper bills to $1 and $2 coins, with a follow-up post encouraging readers to take part in the anti-paper dollar revolution.
