Construction Season in Ohio

So construction season is full under way here in Ohio and one thing that I notice is that there is still no development for improvement for mass transit. They can patch every road and fix every on ramp but that isn't going to help our ever growing problem of inefficiency.

A light rail line can move the equivalent of an 8 lane highway. How long until we are all stuck in gridlock for more than an hour a day. Having recently moved to Canton, I hate the drive back towards Cleveland during the weekends. If I could take a train and just relax for those couple hours I'd be a lot better off. Not only would I feel better mentally but I'd probably accomplish a lot more. Especially if free WiFi were provided.

So Ohio, how about we actually start building something for long term growth instead of widening highways?

Long Time, No Post

The real world got a hold of me unfortunately. I went on a long vacation to Europe and rode on their glorious trains till I couldn't ride anymore. Here are few pictures of my journey.

I had so much of a great time that I didn't really have a chance to take a bunch of pictures of trains and transit like I would have liked. Anyhow I hope to be posting some more articles on here in the future as my professional career is slowing down. In fact you can see a blog/professional site that I am launching in the near future here.

I will have some commentary on transit real soon.
