A Website To Cause The Anti-Rail Crowd Bed Wetting And Nightmares

Hello General Motors, remember us? You last saw us on that rainy December day back in 1936, then you warmed your hands as our streetcars burned. Well guess what America? We're Back!

see the site at: http://www.freewebs.com/lightrailjacksonville/

We have created a WEBSITE as a bi-product of the JACKSONVILLE TRANSIT BLOG that ought to keep the BRT "Just Like Rail Only Cheaper", crowd up with some high voltage bad dreams. In fact we think the articles we have created, borrowed, stolen, begged and otherwise obtained for publication will make the Anti-Rail crowd sit down and cry.

Good. This was designed to get the attention of a brain dead City leadership and shake the grates on the hard core fossil fuel hogs. It might even be a one stop shop for many of the facts and figures you can use in your own local battles.

The site contains: Streetcar Facts, Light Rail Facts, BRT Facts, Jacksonville Streetcar History, Monorail Facts (positive), Video, Charts, and tons of photos, many created with the help of cyber-savvy photoshop boys at the Metro-Jacksonville site. So come on over and warm up by the fire. The warm glow of burning highway tires can be felt around the world. Comments and contributions are welcome, just drop me a note.

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.
