"More Plans, More Projects, More People, More Stars Upon Our Land..."

Yea old Transit Blogger in Jacksonville has been on the road, traveling the month away. I missed my readers and the fun I have when folks respond, some great friendships have come from this Transit Blog Experience. I'm sorry I had to be gone for an extended time but then again, I have a head full of new story's, comments and adventures ready to share.

So get ready as we dive into our second season... We just got the highball and our train is fixing to leave the station. So hang onto your hats gentle readers, this is going to be fun, adventurous, revealing, under cover, critiqued, and packaged for your consumption. Ready to Roll!

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.
