Being a transportation Blog it just wouldn't be fair not to mention the special services of The USAF Military Airlift Command, The US Army Railway Engineers, The US Military Railroads, The Naval Railroad at Pearl Harbour and beyond, The Naval and Marine Corps Transport Units and the thousands of Civilian Military Employees, who have served their country. Americans in harms way, in war and peace around the globe.

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.
