Re: “First Slice 7/21/14: Bike lanes on Peachtree in Buckhead? Think again.

I would encourage anyone with concerns about the road diet to look at the results of the Ponce de Leon road diet. I live in a neighborhood right off that corridor. The Ponce road diet has been a tremendous benefit to both traffic flow and safety. It may seem counter-intuitive that removing lanes would improve traffic flow, but by adding the left-turn lane and bicycle lanes, a major source of bottlenecks was removed.

Re: “Sky Buckets along Moreland Avenue? Let's ponder the possibilities, shall we?

This and PRT are nice and cute, but not really well-equipped for big cities. Stations would have to be pretty big to avoid large backups as people enter and exit the vehicles.

Re: “MARTA safety video is arguably the most realistic depiction of riding transit ever made

"It's actually to stick to the right so that people can board and exit simultaneously -- much more efficient."

You forget this is America. The people are too wide and the doorways are too narrow for two people to fit through the doorways simultaneously.

Re: “Transit, sprawl, and heckling: a very brief recap of last night's Political Party

Ron Sifen saying, "We need more transit," is like a tobacco executive saying, "We need more anti-smoking ads."
