How is you leg room? Can you stretch out, converse with or make friends, or "move about the cabin"

Travel is more then where we sit for 2 - 5 hours, it should be a destination or experience in and of itself. Perhaps we have lost something with the Victorian era or the Industrial Age? Would a beaver hatted nabob be seen in one of todays flying commuter buses? You might be surprised to know that just this past month, when modern Americans were offered a REAL choice, they left the sky for the rails. All Air Shuttle Service between Harrisburg, PA. and New York City just ended as NJ and PA funded extensive train improvements and the air traffic vanished.

TAKE A FREE TOUR OF THE JACKSONVILLE SKYWAY

The arguments rage to this date, "Should have never been built," "waste of taxpayer money," "Doesn't go anywhere," "Nobody rides it..." etc. Bottom line is we have it, and it is finally showing signs of life. Simple extensions to the Stadium, San Marco, and the area of Blue Cross in North Riverside would turn this little train around. Addition of Park and Ride garages and multimodal transit terminals at the end points would bring on the crowds. The video must have been shot on a Sunday Morning, as downtown is certainly as packed with life as any other major City on weekdays. Jacksonville is a city of Bikes, joggers, walkers, buses and cars, one almost wonders how the photographer managed to find this quiet moment.
