Lake Shore Drive should move people, not traffic

Chicago Sun-Times: "Lake Shore Drive is being redesigned with everyone in mind — not just auto traffic. All transportation projects should be built with moving people in mind, not traffic. Repurposing parts of Lake Shore Drive for bus or light rail are more efficient uses of space and will lead some people out of their cars, not cause more traffic. The evidence is in and it proves that the alarmism exhibited in this editorial is unfounded. Chicagoans and planners should recognize this. Moving people, not just traffic, should be the No. 1 priority."

Kudos to [Madison County] MCT! | Clarissa's Blog

Kudos to MCT! | Clarissa's Blog: "The standard of living in any area depends, to a significant degree, on the availability of a reliable and accessible public transportation system. We are supremely fortunate in Madison County to have MCT serve our needs. It is very cheap, so anybody can afford it but the standard of service is extremely high. Among other things, MCT offers a door-to-door service for the disabled and the elderly. Just imagine what a difference a service like this can make in the life of a disabled person.

Thank you, MCT, you are the best!"
