Quote from: tramtrain on March 20, 2012, 23:26:47 PMThere are a quite a few cyclists on the weekends through the area, the idea should not be dismissed. General bicycle rack increases can also be very effective.I go riding in that area a bit, it is nice scenery, coffee etc.

Quote from: tramtrain on March 20, 2012, 23:58:47 PMMy comments so far (more detailed ones will follow when I have time)...* A new North-South route may be possible, but is subject to geometric/geographical/topographical constraints/traffic calming, but the best I could do was to draw a route that begins at Milton train station (interchange) travels up Baroona Road to Paddington Central, up Stafford Street into Arthur Tce and Fulcher Rd then into Waterworks road to serve Ashgrove, then along Ashgrove Avenue, down Kelvin Grove Road, down Herston Road and terminating at RBWH which is a MAJOR trip generator and interconnection point. Speed is paramount as the slower the service is, the better car looks, the fewer people catch the bus, the lower frequency and waste of money it becomes....
Quote from: tramtrain on March 21, 2012, 00:32:01 AMI'm trying to keep it as direct, straight and on arterials as possible while managing to hit the shopping centres and interchange points as well... Can you make your map bigger please? The resolution is a little low for me to resolve
Quote from: Gazza on March 21, 2012, 09:29:52 AM...PS, I do really like Tramtrains proposal, very clean design and reflects establishing a sort of grid of routes in the area...Is the steepness of Ellena St bad enough to stop a bus? How does it compare to some of the steep bus routes in St Lucia as a benchmark.
QuoteThere's a much broader lesson here that I'm sure I'll come back to. Localized interests (such as developers, community groups, and small city governments) tend to invent short routes -- "circulators" or "shuttles" -- because they are thinking about their particular transport problem in isolation. Successful transit agencies, though, are always looking for how to serve these localized needs using longer routes that do many other things. It's by combining markets, not by serving them separately, that successful transit corridors are made.
